An Energy Effective WBAN Architecture for Athletes Efforts Analysis under a Common Activity

By Jyoti Kumari and Prachi


Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) is one\ud of the most critical real time networks. In order to\ud increase network lifetime, several protocols have been\ud proposed in the Literature. Majority of these protocols are\ud based on either coverage or residual energy of the\ud network. However, none of the protocols is based on\ud node criticality, communication count, coverage and\ud residual energy. In this paper, we have taken into\ud consideration all the above stated parameters to determine\ud the optimal path for transmission of message. In\ud particular, we are implementing this scenario for Athlete\ud Activity Monitoring to identify the athlete with maximum\ud physical stamina. As per best of our knowledge, only\ud intra-BAN routing protocols are proposed till date.\ud However, in this paper we have simulated Athlete\ud Activity Monitoring scenario for intra-WBAN and interWBAN\ud architecture. It is clear from the simulation\ud results that our scheme performs much better in terms of\ud energy consumption than earlier routing schemes
