Abstract

Recently, more and more sensor network research is carried out in the area of remote and mobile health systems (mHealth) or Telemedicine applications. In these applications the sensors are centered in or on the proximity of the human body thereby forming a network called Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) that is uniquely important for consideration. Hot problems currently researched in this network include reliability and energy efficiency of routing protocols.  In this paper we present the analysis of three prominent routing protocols AODV, DSR and DSDV, based on the key characteristics of the WBAN using IEEE 802.15.4 MAC Protocol. In our experiments, packet delivery ratio and average end-end delay were used as the measure for the communication reliability and energy savings efficiency, while considering the mobility of the nodes, network communication range and the number of nodes. Based on the experimental analysis, both AODV and DSR protocols have good reliability, while DSDV performed very poorly with over 90 percent packet losses largely due to its high routing table overhead. Furthermore, in energy savings efficiency, DSR and AODV had similar performance while DSDV performed a little poorer.
