Propuesta de una Metodología de Medición de Radiaciones no Ionizantes Emitidas por Tecnologías de Comunicaciones Inalámbricas de Dispositivos Portátiles Rni

Project Details


General objective Propose a methodology for measuring non-ionizing radiation emitted by wireless communication technologies of portable devices. Justification The world population is inevitably exposed to a complex combination of electromagnetic fields with different frequency contents. And although there is still no conclusive evidence linking non-ionizing radiation emitted by portable devices that use wireless communication technologies with risks to human health, it is always better to take preventive measures. One of them is to define a measurement methodology that includes measurement techniques but also a procedure for the effective selection of the most suitable commercial measurement systems (Reyes-Lopez & Vera-Rivera, 2016). Despite global advances, Ecuador it is in phases prior to that of developed countries (Agency for Regulation and Control of Telecommunications, 2016), so the studies to be carried out are highly relevant, not only at the national level but would also provide useful data to the rest of the world .This project will also serve as a basis for the development of new future research, such as the mitigation of radiation levels based on international standards (Reyes & Ramos, 2010) in order to provide greater protection to the public, always remembering that a balanced between technology and health is optimal. Apart from these investigations of purely technical origin, there is still a long way to go concerning research stigations in social sciences, especially in aspects related to the procedure to inform the population, in a rigorous and effective manner, about the state of radioelectric contamination responsible for electromagnetic fields; to eliminate unjustified social alarms and to publicize the real risks.
