A scheme for two-hop relay-assisted cooperative communications integrated with transmit power control, based on simple channel prediction, is presented. A large set of empirical on- and inter-body channel data is employed to model various scenarios of wireless body area network (WBAN) communications, from one isolated WBAN up to 10 closely located WBANs coexisting. Our study shows that relay assisted power control can reduce approximately 60% circuit power consumption from that of constant...[Show more]
