In Wireless Body Sensor Network (WBSN) environments, diverse factors can affect channel environments. For example, the condition of the channel can be changed due to sensor mobility resulting from movements of the experimenter. In addition, the placement of the sensors can change the channel. In this paper, the authors analyzed the impact of different sensor placements and body movements on the channel environment by measuring the Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) and the Packet Delivery Rate (PDR). Diverse experiments were conducted with real sensor devices in an office environment.
