In this work we demonstrate a procedure for the use of a custom-built, semi-automated robotic positioning system to map EM fields in commercially available RF exposure systems and compare the results against FDTD simulations. All field measurements were obtained independently with calibrated E-field or H-field probes. Results show that the robot can effectively operate within the complicated EM environment of the RF exposure platforms with good agreement between simulated and measured results. Future work will continue to improve the techniques discussed here.
