The document presents a potentially innovative methodology for carrying out large-scale measurements of radio frequency electromagnetic field. The system consists in performing dynamic measurements using a control unit equipped with the appropriate probes positioned on the roof of a car moving along the territory. Aim of the work is to provide a methodology to assess field strength variability which characterize future 5G scenarios with a combination of measurements carried out in a dynamic way in comparison with the static measurement approach which is commonly adopted for environmental impact assessment. . The possibility to perform massive measurements in a short time could become extremely useful in the next future to evaluate electromagnetic field levels, when the implementation of the new 5G services will lead to an increased complexity in the use of the spectrum and new antenna systems (Active Antenna Systems)
Simona Valbonesi (presenter)
Graduated in Physics in 1994 at the University of Bologna, she obtained the Specialization in Health Physics in 1998 at the same University.
After a brief working experience for the Health Physics Sector of Parma University, from 2000 to 2017 she worked for the Elettra 2000 Consortium, taking care of electromagnetic fields monitoring, health effects and dosimetry collaborating at the same time with FUB in various projects.
From year 2017 she works for Ugo Bordoni Foundation.
In years 2017/2020 she worked on projects concerning the tender for the 5G frequency assignement, the coexistence between fixed systems at 26 GHz and 5G systems, the measurement of the mobile internet services quality and on projects related to the agreement with ARPA Emilia Romagna concerning measurement and dosimetry of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields.
Her research activity mainly concerns the study of the effects of electromagnetic fields with particular reference to the dosimetric aspects
He has published over 30 papers on topics related to electromagnetic fields.
