Title
A Fast Channel Assignment Scheme for Emergency Handling in Wireless BodyArea Networks
Description
This research is supported by Basic Science Research Program through theNational Research Foundation of Korea (NRF) funded by the Ministry ofEducation (NRF-2015R1D1A1A01059962).
abstract
Ubiquitous healthcare is a promising technology that has attracted significant attention in recent years; this has led to the realization of wireless body area networks (WBANs). For designing a robust WBAN system, the WBAN has to solve the drawbacks of wireless technology. Also, a WBAN has to support immediate, reliable data transmission for medical services during emergencies. Hence, this study proposes a new MAC superframe structure that can handle emergencies by delivering strongly correlated regular data to a caretaker, within a certain time threshold. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed MAC protocol achieves low latency and high throughput.
