 Abstract
In general, WBAN environment which use wearable devices on the human body show the different characteristics from other personal area networks. It is usually composed of sensors contacting the body and user terminal collecting the data from the sensors. The sensors are under the significant constraint of the energy resources, but the user terminal is different because it can be recharged and relatively have large energy resources. Under this characteristics, we design a new MAC protocol considering this requirements. The proposed MAC protocol can increase the energy efficiency of sensors and loads the unavoidable energy consumption to the user terminal for high energy efficiency of sensors. Additionally, the proposed MAC protocol provides the low delivery delay of the emergency information for the differentiated QoS because the emergency data requires more rapid transmission than the periodic sensed data. For this requirement, we employ the IFS (Inter Frame Space). For the efficient and objective evaluation of the proposed MAC protocol, IEEE 802.15.6 MAC is used to compare with it and we show that the advantage of the proposed MAC meet our expectation.
