AbstractWe propose a radio frequency (RF) sensor built on a fabric textile substrate for pulmonary edema monitoring. The 37-port RF sensor is designed and optimized to operate at 60 MHz with a low input power of 1 mW. By applying the least squares (LS) method, an equation was obtained for dielectric constant estimation using the transmission coefficient of each RF sensor port. The simulated errors are estimated for normal lung, edema and emphysema infected lung cases using a human chest model with an average error of 0.57%. Inkjet printing of the proposed design is then discussed.
