Abstract: Due to emergence of WBAN in real time applications recently, significant research works are reported on communication standards of wireless body area networks (WBANs). The two primary challenges in opportunistic WBANs that are- network management cost reduction and energy consumption reduction in order to deliver the cost-effective and reliable services to critical patients in healthcare application. There are number of solutions reported to address this challenges in recent past, however, they failed to cover all the aspects of WBANs communication. In this, project we proposed novel opportunistic communication protocol for WBANs with aim to solve the research challenges not only the energy efficiency and network management cost reduction but also solves the problem of non-reliable nodes data dissemination. First we proposed the novel energy-efficient and distributed network management cost minimization framework for dynamic connectivity and data dissemination in opportunistic WBANs. Then we proposed a pricing based approach for reliable node data dissemination. This can be done by reputation-based incentive methods to motivate participants to disseminate reliable data in participatory sensing system, while minimizing incentive cost for maintaining sufficient number of reliable participants. The simulation results reveal the effectiveness of proposed method.
