Wireless Capsule Endoscope (WCE) is the high data rate application of wireless body area network (WBAN) which detects patient’s Gastrointestinal (GI) tract after being swallowed. The challenging issue is the limited lifetime of battery in these devices due to high resolution image transmission. We designed Battery-Friendly packet transmission strategies- Lazy and Modified Lazy to extend the lifetime of these devices. Simulation results show that battery life time is extended.
