Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) are getting growing interest because of their suitability for wide range of medical and non-medical applications. These applications demand WBAN to stay functional for a longer time which requires energy-efficient operation. In this paper, we propose a new routing protocol for Balanced Energy Consumption (BEC) in WBANs. In BEC, relay nodes are selected based on a cost function. The nodes send their data to their nearest relay nodes to route it to the sink… CONTINUE READING
