Abstract

In this article, we discuss the recent developments of using radiofrequency (RF) and terahertz (THz) waves in the tracking the wellbeing of living organisms that include human beings and plants. We particularly focus on the accurate monitoring of human activity through RF waves found in the environment around us and sensing a plant's health by detecting the leaf water content using THz waves.
