Sensors are embedded in dense mediums, such as walls of building and underground, for various applications. However, traditional wireless communication using Electro-Magnetic (EM) waves does not operate well in this embedded sensor networks because the EM waves are attenuated severely in new propagation mediums including rock, soil, and water. Magnetic Induction (MI) communication is rising as a promising technique for embedded sensor networks since the magnetic field experiences little attenuation in dense mediums. In this paper, the authors investigate the capacity maximization of MI communication.
