DAREPage 4 In medical field: WBAN makes use of the tiny sensors for detecting and monitoring different biological characteristics of a human body. The sensors can either be: in-vivo wearable
DAREPage 8 Monitoring different organs of a human body for detecting an ailment or any disorder. The proposed protocol DARE aims: to improve the deficiencies in a BAN protocol of M-ATTEMPT namely, minimum stability period minimum network lifetime high energy consumption low throughput

DAREPage 18 Scenario-1 The BSs on each patient carry information and transmit to their respective BR which, then aggregates and relay the received data to the sink located at the center of the ward. The communication flow is from BSs to BR to Sink.
DAREPage 19 Scenario-2 Four sinks have been used that are separately deployed in the middle of the walls of the ward. The BSs of each patient, on sensing the vital sign transmit data to their respective BR. The BR checks for the nearest sink by calculating it’s distance with each sink. Whichever, sink is found nearest, the BR communicates with that particular sink. The communication flow is from BSs to BR to nearest Sink (Sink1 or Sink2 or Sink3 or Sink4).
DAREPage 20 Scenario-3 MS is incorporated on each bed which, can be a PDA type device. The deployment of MS helps the BR to consume little energy as, BR transmits data over shorter distance. However, this scenario increases the delay in the network, as the data traverses through a long route towards the destination node, the Sink. Communication flow is from BSs to BR to MS to Sink.
DAREPage 21 Scenario-4 It follows the same communication flow as sceanrio-1, however, now the sink is made mobile which, moves along the center of ward.
DAREPage 22 Scenario-5 Multiple sinks move around the walls of the ward altogether. In this scenario also, each BR measures it’s distance with each sink. Whosoever is found close, the BR starts communicating with that sink. The communication flow is from BSs to BR to the nearest moving Sink (Sink1 or Sink2 or Sink3 or Sink4).
