Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) have recently emerged as a solution to enable effective location-aware applications. The rapid mobility of nodes is the most specific problem of this kind of networks and it is not well considered when designing MAC protocols. In this paper, we consider a WBAN using a typical TDMA-based Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol and an Impulse Radio Ultra Wideband (IR-UWB) physical layer defined by the standard IEEE802.15.6. We investigate the impact of mobility ondoi:10.4108/icst.bodynets.2014.257113 dblp:conf/bodynets/GuizarOGAG14 fatcat:kxnb37bkq5dwpcr4eqxpyyhzrq
