Wireless communication is becoming a part of our life at every step. But widespread use in medical applications is yet to come. We are developing a wireless communication system based on 802.15.6 MAC and 802.15.4 PHY for use in transmitting ECG data from a remote patient monitoring device which is used for home based telemedicine applications. The paper concentrates on explaining the stack program development phases of the standard IEEE 802.15.6 and its flexible access features. It is believed that the subjected standard is going to provide a medical data highway in its reserved bands.


Energy efficient wireless unicast routing alternatives for machine-to-machine networks
Tekbiyik, Neyre; Uysal, Elif (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-01)
Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications is a new and rapidly developing technology for large-scale networking of devices without dependence on human interaction. Energy efficiency is one of the important design objectives for machine-to-machine network architectures that often contain multihop wireless subnetworks. Constructing energy-efficient routes for sending data through such networks is important not only for the longevity of the nodes which typically depend on battery energy, but also for achieving a...

ULUŞAR, ÜMİT DENİZ; Celik, Gurkan; Al-Turjman, Fadi (2017-10-12)
Recent advances in technology propelled the development of resource constrained tiny devices and the concept of Internet of Things (IoT). Potential applications spanning various fields of science from environmental to medical have been emerged. Different architectures, routing protocols, performance issues and goals have been suggested. In this work, we review fundamental concepts, recent developments and critical design factors under IoT-specific constraints and objectives such as energy efficiency and env...
Broadband microwave diode mixer design and implementation
Koç, Emrah; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2016)
Mixers play a critical role in design and development of wireless communication systems. Demanding requirements of the mixers are improvements in conversion efficiency, bandwidth, cost, and linearity. Schottky barrier diodes attract mixer designers due to their favorable characteristics leading to wide bandwidth, low-cost, and high efficient designs. This thesis demonstrates the design and implementation of two passive mixing circuits using Schottky barrier diodes at microwave frequencies. The first circuit...
Finding sensing coverage and breach paths in wireless sensor networks
Onur, Ertan; Delic, H (2004-01-01)
Most of the recent studies on wireless sensor networks deal with the communication coverage. However, for the surveillance wireless sensor networks, sensing coverage is an open research area. In this paper, the sensing coverage area of surveillance wireless sensor networks is studied. The sensing coverage is determined by applying Neyman-Pearson Detection Model and Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm is applied to find the weakest breach path. Although individually not enough, breach probability is an approp...
Network density estimators and density-aware wireless networks
Eroğlu, Alperen; Onur, Ertan; Department of Computer Engineering (2020-11)
New network architectures and communication technologies continue to emerge to meet rapidly increasing and changing user demands requiring continuous connectivity and high data rate transmissions. These ubiquitous infrastructures result in a paradigm shift in mobile communications with the advent of mobile robots equipped with sensors, unmanned aerial vehicles, and mobile small-cells, which makes the future networks highly dynamic. This dynamism poses unpredictable variations in the network density causing ...
