Abstract [en]

In wireless body sensor networks (WBSN) and wireless body area networks (WBAN), sensor nodes have different bandwidth requirements, therefore, heterogeneous traffic is created. In this paper, we propose a statistical medium access control (MAC) protocol with periodic synchronization for use in heterogeneous traffic networks based on human body communication (HBC). The MAC protocol is designated to ensure energy efficiency by means of flexible time slot allocation and a statistical frame. The statistical frame is intended to increase the sleep time and keep low duty cycles in each beacon period. The MAC protocol was fully implemented on our HBC platform. The experimental results proved that the proposed MAC protocol is compact and energy-efficient.
