This paper analyzes MIMO propagation channels for personal area networks. Such channels show important differences to propagation channels in wide-area networks, due to the different environments in which the systems are operated, as well as due to different mobility models, ranges, and presence of humans in the environment, and the impact of the antenna arrangement. We present results from a recent measurement campaign for this type of channel. We first analyze the requirements for measurement setups, especially in terms of different positions and orientations of the antenna arrays, to obtain meaningful results. We then analyze the measured data and present results for path loss, power delay profiles, spatial correlation and temporal correlation.
