The transmission-power-control (TPC) algorithm is one of the techniques used for the reduction of sensor energy consumption in WBSN
Wireless Body Sensor Networks (WBSNs
) is a subtype of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) capable of monitoring medical and non medical applications via multi-hop or single hop topologies.
The routing in WBSN
has attracted the attention of the researchers due to its characteristics and challenges.
base stations feature leading radio technology including bi-directional Beamforming 802.11n, unique interference immunity suite, 3x3 MIMO and advanced antenna system, to provide high capacity and ubiquitous coverage in both 2.4 and 5 GHz with a low number of radio units.
In Golbeck (2005), the Marsh model has been critiqued as being highly theoretical and difficult to implement, and that it is particularly inappropriate for use in web based social networks as the information requirements of Marsh model are not captured in most WBSNs
. From the many trust models available, we adopt the trust model used by Golbeck (2005).
However, for on-body WBSNs
, this should not be a big issue since all nodes can ultimately be tied to the same on-body clock.
