In recent days, Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) comprising with different bio-sensors (e.g., EEG, EMG, and ECG etc.) has been getting popular for observing human health condition and various medical applications. Since, biosensors are battery-operated and deployed on human-body for long-term use, frequent sensor replacement is troublesome and complex task. Hence, it is important to design energy-efficient protocols especially Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol for WBANs. As of now… CONTINUE READING
