Magnetic induction-based communication through underground

  • Sampath T et al.


The Wireless Underground Sensors Network is a promising alternative method for the data
transmission through the underground soil. The method uses various sensors to record the data and
transmit them through a distance wirelessly and thus called Wireless Underground Sensors Network.
The system uses the Magnetic fields generated due to the Magnetic Induction produced in the induction
coils present in the transmitter and receiver. From this method there is accuracy in the data transmitted
through the soil. Also the data transmitted at the transmitter are well correlated with the values received
at the receiver end. The paper investigates a method to transfer signals underground more efficiently
than transferring them through the atmosphere. The ultimate aim of this work is to transfer the signals
through the soil efficiently than transferring them through the atmosphere.
