V. Ayatollahitafti, M. A. Ngadi . An Efficient Algorithm with Reduced Delay in Body Area Networks. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 4, 4 ( October 2012), 19-23. DOI=10.5120/ijais12-450688
BANs(Body Area Networks) are networks which use different sensors for controlling status of patients. In this networks , according to type of disease and medical observation, sensors put on the patient's body and he or she can be controlled on pressure,body temperature and so on. One problem for doctors is the information that is sent with delay. Sending the information with delay is caused death of thousands patients in the world. In this paper ,one hospital health care is considered that routing between nodes was carried out with normal olsr, and in another time selecting MPR nodes was carried out with minimum delay between source node and MPR node(proposed algorithm). Then delay in the network was calculated with two above methods. Results showed that delay in the proposed algorithm was less than normal algorithm. For simulation, opnet was used.
