Summary:This book provides a novel solution for existing challenges in wireless body sensor networks (WBAN) such as network lifetime, fault tolerant approaches, reliability, security, and privacy. The contributors first discuss emerging trends of WBAN in the present health care system. They then provide possible solutions to challenges inherent in WBANs. Finally, they discuss results in working environments. Topics include communication protocols of implanted, wearable and nano body sensor networks; energy harvesting methodologies and experimentation for WBAN; reliability analysis and fault tolerant architecture for WBAN; and handling network failure during critical duration. The contributors consist of researchers and practitioners in WBAN around the world
