A New Traffic Priority Aware and Energy Efficient Protocol for WBANs

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 571)


For long-term real-time monitoring of human parameters, providing effective treatment for patients and reduce medical costs WBANs emerged, electrical devices microminiaturization makes WBANs come true. The network environment of WBAN is heterogeneous, nodes function and data types are various, however, in typical SPIN data priority is not considered. Limited resource is another challenge for WBANs, whole network energy balance is neglected by now available protocol. Aiming on provide low latency transmission for critical data and extend network lifetime, we proposed a optimization protocol for SPIN, data transmission and routing selection based on data priorities and residual energy. The outcome of simulation we performed show that the improved algorithm result in low latency and longer network lifetime.
