Nowadays, the deployment of wireless sensors on patients becomes more and more popular. This promotes researchers and application developers to focus on issues related to Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs). Applications associated to WBANs include healthcare, personal assistance, and entertainment where sensor nodes collect information and issue them to a central data server. To meet the new requirements of WBANs, the design of an efficient MAC protocol to handle the diversity of data traffic… CONTINUE READING
