A Beacon Interval Shifting Scheme for Interference Mitigation in Body Area Networks

  title={A Beacon Interval Shifting Scheme for Interference Mitigation in Body Area Networks},
  author={Seungku Kim and Seokhwan Kim and Jin-Woo Kim and Doo Seop Eom},
This paper investigates the issue of interference avoidance in body area networks (BANs). IEEE 802.15 Task Group 6 presented several schemes to reduce such interference, but these schemes are still not proper solutions for BANs. We present a novel distributed TDMA-based beacon interval shifting scheme that reduces interference in the BANs. A design goal of the scheme is to avoid the wakeup period of each BAN coinciding with other networks by employing carrier sensing before a beacon… CONTINUE READING
