Recently, increasing demand for remote healthcare monitoring systems poses a specific set of Quality of Services (QoS) requirements to theMAC layer protocols and standards (IEEE 802.15.6, IEEE 802.15.4, etc.) ofWireless Body Area Sensor Networks (WBASNs).Theymainly include time bounded services (latency), reliable data transmission, fair channel distribution, and specified data rates.The existingMACprotocols ofWBASNs are lack of a specific set of QoS. To address this, the paper proposes aQoS… CONTINUE READING
