In this paper, we study the problem of routing, bandwidth and flow assignment in Wireless Body Area Networks (BANs). Our solution considers BAN for real-time data streaming applications, where the real-time nature of data streams is of critical importance for providing a useful and efficient sensorial feedback for the user while system lifetime should be maximized. Thus, bandwidth and energy efficiency of the communication between energy constrained sensor nodes must be carefully optimized. The… CONTINUE READING
