In 2007, Australia's Information and Communications Technology Research Centre of Excellence (NICTA) published a simulator for WSN, WBAN, and more generally for networks of low-power embedded devices, which is called Castalia.
[65] designed a home-oriented WBAN system that continuously monitors user activity and heart rate.
The lifetime constrain can be also approached from perspective of optimal design of WBAN, by studying the joint data routing and relay positioning problem [43].
In WBAN, APs are connected with the CUs and most of the cases, each CU moves within a single room environment.
This section discusses existing related studies, primarily case studies and applied services, by using the WBAN. Previous studies on the WBAN [7-13] were completed with regard to minimum communication distance for sensors in the WBAN, minimum battery power consumption, and extremely tiny embedded systems for human body insertion.
DrWilliam Scanlon, who heads the project at the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT) in Queen's, said the UK leads the world in the development of wearable communications including WBAN antennas.
