A Power-Efficient Mechanism of IEEE 802.15.6 WBAN for Wireless USB Support

In this paper, an IEEE 802.15.6 Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) medium access control protocol is developed to support a Wireless USB (WUSB) application as a Protocol Adaptation Layer (PAL). Further, the authors propose a Power Efficient Mechanism (PEM) technique based on the WUSB over WBAN protocol. The proposed time synchronization technique reduces power consumption. It is executed using the WUSB over WBAN protocol at each sensor node. They design the PEM and simulate for performance evaluation.
