Near field communication devices and the emerging field of Internet of things require efficient short range communication techniques. Classical telecommunication theory however has so far focused on radiating electromagnetic signals which is more suited to terrestrial communication systems. Over the last decade however considerable research and applications of inductive methods have emerged as innovative approaches for secure short range communications by changing the paradigm of an established model of electromagnetic communications. We have witnessed the emergence of embedded inductive medical devices, magneto-inductive waveguides, inductive pots and cooking devices, magneto-inductive sensors, wireless power transfer, inductive hearing aids and the emerging inductive point-to-point communication specifically termed near-field communication (NFC) as used in mobile phones and payment cards to name a few. While there exist a large set of distributed methods and algorithms detailing the design and performances of such applications, a significant gap is observed as a lack of detailed collection of the methods in one place which could be easily understood and used quickly by someone seeking to apply the methods.

In this book this missing gap is filled with the required details and the theory of near field communication systems including both the radiating and reactive (energy coupling) near-field systems in addition to the well known far field radiation techniques. The book details the fundamental expressions and design methods which facilitate the creation of near field devices and equipment including embedded biomedical implants. The book contains recent advances in inductive communications, performance, limitations and a collection of applications. It also lays a strong foundation for the application of inductive methods for creating Internet of Things systems.

* The topics discussed in the book in great details include:

* Near field and far field methods

* Circuit models of inductive antennas;

* Inductive methods in embedded medical devices

* Range and capacity extension methods including multiple-input and multiple-output inductive systems;

* Coding and modulation techniques;

* Narrowband and broadband methods;

* Magnetic link budgets;

* Crosstalk

* Magnetic induction waveguide devices and a Near field Simulator in Matlab

The book is a compendium and design methods for inductive near field technologies and is ideal for design personnel in the wireless communication industries as well as academic staff and master/research students in computer science, wireless sensors, telecommunications systems research, electrical engineering and Internet of things. It is a useful guide for undergraduate student to appreciate the role of inductive circuits and magnetism in telecommunications and electronic devices in general.

Johnson graduated from La Trobe University with a PhD (1994) in microwave radar remote sensing (MSc Research University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland (1982) in microprocessor techniques in digital control systems) and BSc (Electronic/Electrical Engineering, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife, Nigeria (1977). He is currently Associate Professor (remote sensing systems engineering) in the department of electronic engineering and Extraordinary Professor in telecommunications at Tshwane University of Technology/ French South African Technical Institute in Pretoria, South Africa. He is also Extraordinary Professor in computer science at the University of the Western Cape in South Africa, Cape Town. He was a Senior Research Scientist at CSIRO Telecommunications and Industrial Physics (1994 - 2000; renamed CSIRO ICT) in biometrics and remote sensing and Principal Engineer Research at Vodafone Australia research from 2000 to 2003. He is the author of six technical books in electronic communications including Principles of Inductive Near Field Communications for Internet of Things (River Publishers, Aalborg Postkontor, Denmark, 2011); IP Communications and Services for NGN (Auerbach Publications, Taylor & Francis Group, USA, 2010) and Planning and Optimisation of 3G and 4G Wireless Networks (River Publishers, Aalborg Postkontor, Denmark, 2009). He is Consulting Editor for River Publishers Denmark on new areas in Telecommunications and Science. He is the founder and editor-in-chief of the African Journal of ICT (AJICT) and founder of the International Conference on Broadband Communications and Biomedical Applications (IB2COM). His current research interests include remote and short range sensing, inductive communications and wireless power transfer, Internet of Things , wireless and mobile communications and biometric systems. Dr. Agbinya is a member of IEEE and African Institute of Mathematics (AIMS). He has published extensivelyoin broadband wireless communications, biometrics, vehicular networks, video and speech compression and coding, contributing to the development of voice over IP, intelligent multimedia sub-system and design and optimisation of 3G networks. He was recipient of research and best paper awards and has held several advisory roles including the Nigerian National ICT Policy initiative.
