The advanced developments in sensors and wireless communications devices have enabled the design of miniature, cost-effective, and smart physiological sensor nodes. One of the approaches in developing wearable health monitoring systems is the emerging of wireless body area network (WBAN). IEEE 802.15.4 provides low power, low data rate wireless standard in relation to medical sensor body area networks. In the current study, the star network topology of 802.15.4 standard at 2.4 GHz had been… CONTINUE READING
