This paper presents a study of the radio channel characteristics between a colon capsule endoscope and a multiple on-body antenna system in ultra wideband wireless body area networks (UWB-WBAN). The main aim is to study the variation of the channel characteristics for the on-body antennas in different capsule locations throughout the whole colon area. The study is conducted with CST Studio Suite simulations and one of its anatomical voxel models. A simplified capsule model and directive on-body antennas designed for low-band UWB in-body communications are used. It is found that five of this type directive on-body antennas provide sufficient coverage over the whole colon are even in the most challenging capsule locations.
