Reliable, Context-Aware and Energy-Efficient Architecture for Wireless Body Area Networks in Sports Applications

Keywords: context awareness; energy efficiency; congestion control; loss recovery, WBAN architecture

Abstract:
Reliability, Context awareness and Energy efficiency are some of the most important requirements for Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs). The proposed architecture for WBANs puts together a Media Access Control (MAC) protocol, a Transport Protocol and a Rate Control scheme proposed in our previous work. It proposes the use of three extra bits within each beacon period for indicating whether the hub is going to assign new slot Reallocations to the nodes, to request for lost packet Retransmissions from the nodes, to send Rate-control requests to the nodes, or any combination of them. Some experimental results are presented in order to validate the requirements and a comparison with other architectures is made using the main detected requirements for WBANs
