Coexistence of multiple wireless body area networks (WBAN) is a very challenging problem because piconets move frequently and each piconet can have hundreds of sensors. The IEEE 802.15.6 task group is developing a standard based on superframe-level frequency-hopping scheme, which is a good solution to the piconet coexistence problem without requiring coordination between piconets. However, its spectrum efficiency is very low when only a single piconet is operating. In this paper we propose a...[Show more]
