This paper presents novel store-and-forward packet routing algorithms for Wireless Body Area Networks () with frequent postural partitioning. A prototype has been constructed for experimentally characterizing on-body topology disconnections in the presence of ultra short range radio links, unpredictable RF attenuation, and human postural mobility. On-body DTN routing protocols are then developed using a stochastic link cost formulation, capturing multi-scale topological localities in human postural movements. Read More
