Contention vs. polling: a study in body area networks MAC design


Medium Access Control design for Body Area Networks is challenging due to the uniqueness of the wireless channel characteristics (highly variable in time) and the need for ultra low power while maintaining reasonable performance. Using our temporal BAN channel models we study trade-offs created by a mix of two MAC techniques: i) contention-based access, and… (More)
