Abstract

A Body Area Network (BAN) is a wireless network of wearable or implantable computing devices. A BAN typically consists of several miniaturized radio-enabled body sensor/actuator that communicate with a single coordinator. Medical applications usually impose stringent constraints on the BAN operational reliability, quality of service, and power consumption. However, as there is no coordination among multiple co-located BANs, cross-interference could make achieving these objectives a challenging problem. Assuming Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) at each BAN, this paper investigates the ability of regret matching based transmission scheduling algorithm to ease the impact of inter-BAN interference. This scheduling algorithm uses pattern of past interference for implicit coordination between different BAN transmissions. Simulation results demonstrate potential benefits of the proposed scheme for inter-BAN interference mitigation.
