dc.description.abstract Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) consist of several wireless sensors located around a human body. These sensors may measure several biological signals, movement, and temperature. Due to major improvements in power consumption and constantly shrinking devices, WBANs are becoming ubiquitous. As a side effect present because of the small form factor of these devices, the battery size is limited. While the sensors themselves may be extremely power efficient, all of the measured data must be transmitted over a much less efficient wireless link. One benefit of WBANs is that they rarely include more than a dozen wireless devices over a small area. This constraint allows for the use of routing techniques not suitable for larger wireless sensor networks(WSNs). Presented in this work is a novel global routing algorithm link-cost function to maximize network lifetime in WBANs. Also included are a basic software framework for developing WBANs, a sample Wireless Electrocardiogram (ECG) application, and a simple link cost algorithm development platform. en_US
