Coexistence of multiple wireless body area networks (WBAN) is a very challenging problem because each piconet can have a large number of sensors and their movement is unpredictable. Moreover, suitable global coordination schemes do not exist as there is no natural choice of coordinator between piconets. Adaptive schemes that work well with low-occupancy channels, such as listen before transmit, are not a wise global solution because of the potential for high levels of traffic in any one area...[Show more]
