Opportunistic relaying in wireless body area networks: Coexistence performance

  title={Opportunistic relaying in wireless body area networks: Coexistence performance},
  author={Jie Dong and David B. Smith},
  journal={2013 IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC)},
In this paper, a cooperative two-hop communication scheme, together with opportunistic relaying (OR), is applied within a mobile wireless body area network (WBAN). Its effectiveness in interference mitigation is investigated in a scenario where there are multiple closely-located networks. Due to a typical WBAN's nature, no coordination is used among different WBANs. A suitable time-division-multiple-access (TDMA) scheme is adopted as both an intra-network and also an internetwork access scheme… CONTINUE READING
