Title: Transmission-Rate-Adaption Assisted Energy-Efficient Resource Allocation With QoS Support in WBANs

Publisher: IEEE
Abstract: With the advances in wearable sensors and wireless technologies, wireless body area network (WBAN) has become a promising network to provide health applications, such as ubiquitous e-Health services and real-time health monitoring. In these WBANs, quality of service (QoS) requirements, including packet loss rate, throughput, and delay, need to be guaranteed for providing reliable and real-time data transmission even under highly dynamic environment due to human mobility and postures. Meanwhile, energy efficiency is another key factor to consider for increasing the network lifetime in such a resource-constrained network. In this paper, a transmission-rate-adaption assisted and energy-efficient resource allocation scheme is proposed in which both constraints of QoS metrics and the characteristics of dynamic links are considered. Specifically, a QoS optimization problem is formulated to optimize the transmission power and time slots for each sensor, which minimizes energy consumption subjected to the QoS constraints. Due to the dynamic link characteristics, the link quality may become poor, and then the QoS requirements of normal packets and emergency packets cannot be satisfied. Besides, the emergency packets should receive more attentions with a high priority and high QoS requirements. To guarantee the QoS requirements when the link is very poor, a transmission rate adaption policy is proposed to carefully adjust the transmission rate at each sensor to assist the QoS optimization problem, and a priority-based retransmission strategy is designed to apply the retransmission strategy to further improve the performances of the emergency packets with a high priority. Numerical results demonstrate the effectiveness of the QoS optimization problem, the proposed transmission rate adaption policy, and the priority-based retransmission strategy.
