Cooperative body-area-communications: Enhancing coexistence without coordination between networks

Dong, Jie; Smith, David


In this paper, coexistence of multiple mobile wireless body area networks (WBANs), where there is no coordination between WBANs, is investigated for the case where the WBAN-of-interest employs cooperative communications. A decode-and-forward protocol with two dual-hop links, two relays and selection combining (SC) at the hub (or gateway device) is chosen for the WBAN-of-interest. A suitable time-division-multiple-access (TDMA) scheme is used, enabling intra-network and inter-network operation,...[Show more]
