As a kind of small-scale Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs), Body Sensor Networks (BSNs) can provide the pervasive, long-term, and real-time health monitoring. A high degree of Quality-of-Service (QoS) for BSN is extremely required to meet some critical services. Interuser interference between different BSNs can cause unreliable critical data transmission and high bite error rate. In this paper, a game theoretic decentralized interuser interference reduction scheme for BSN is proposed. The selection of the channel and transmission power is modeled as a non-cooperative game between different BSNs congregating in the same area.
