Brief description We propose building an implantable wireless monitoring device capable of what is now extremely difficult: transmitting real-time medical-quality video from within the human body. This project aims to build this medical device by defining a relationship between the biomedical performance metrics needed to achieve this and the underlying wireless technology indicators--power, data rate, and other parameters--and in so doing, define an improved methodology for selecting technologies for, and the designing of, these circuits and systems. Techniques will be explored to use this relationship to also dynamically optimise wireless and biomedical performance while the device is in operation so as to get even better performance.
