Abstract

Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) is one of the most critical real time networks. In order to increase network lifetime, several protocols have been proposed in the Literature. Majority of these protocols are based on either coverage or residual energy of the network. However, none of the protocols is based on node criticality, communication count, coverage and residual energy. In this paper, we have taken into consideration all the above stated parameters to determine the optimal path for transmission of message. In particular, we are implementing this scenario for Athlete Activity Monitoring to identify the athlete with maximum physical stamina. As per best of our knowledge, only intra-BAN routing protocols are proposed till date. However, in this paper we have simulated Athlete Activity Monitoring scenario for intra-WBAN and inter-WBAN architecture. It is clear from the simulation results that our scheme performs much better in terms of energy consumption than earlier routing schemes.
