  • HEH-BMAC: hybrid polling MAC protocol for WBANs operated by human energy harvesting 

    Ibarra, Ernesto; Antonopoulos, Angelos; Kartsakli, Elli; Verikoukis, Christos (2015-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper introduces human energy harvesting medium access control (MAC) protocol (HEH-BMAC), a hybrid polling MAC suitable for wireless body area networks powered by human energy harvesting. The proposed protocol combines ...

    In this paper, we aim at the optimal use of the scarce energy collected by a node powered by human energy harvesting in order to improve the provided Quality of Service (QoS). To achieve this goal, we have developed a ...
  • QoS-Aware energy management in body sensor nodes powered by human energy harvesting 

    Ibarra, Ernesto; Antonopoulos, Angelos; Kartsakli, Elli; Rodrigues, Joel; Verikoukis, Christos (2016-01-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    Harvesting energy in the human environment has been identified as an effective way to charge the body sensor nodes in wireless body area networks (WBANs). In such networks, the capability of the nodes to detect events is ...
