Precision of EM Simulation based Wireless Location Estimation in Multi-Sensor Capsule Endoscopy
     Abstract In this paper, we compute and examine two-way localization limits for an RF endoscopy pill as it passes through an individuals gastrointestinal (GI) tract. We obtain finite-difference time-domain and finite element method-based simulation results position assessment employing time of arrival... Read more
