About this Research Topic The deployment of 5G networks is a fundamental step to enable a variety of innovative services. Although the benefits of 5G are clear and well recognized, a portion of the general public is extremely concerned about the impact of 5G on human exposure to ElectroMagnetic Fields (EMFs). In this context, many...
