Abstract
The 5G wireless systems bring the new concept of the Internet of Everything, emerging trends that include new services and the recent revolution in smart wearable devices. In the systems for on-body applications, the antennas have been challenging because they are conventionally built on rigid substrates. However, embedding antennas into clothing allows expanding the interaction of the user with some electronic devices. This paper presents the design of a single patch and MIMO textile antennas, operating at 5.8 GHz. The performance of both textile antennas was tested and the reproducibility of the manufacturing technique was analyzed.
