UTILITY OF COGNITIVE RADIO IN WBAN AND DISCUSSION OF DIFFERENT ALGORITHMS FOR THE SAME.

Abstract−A WIRELESS BODY AREA NETWORK (WBAN) is a wireless sensor network technology that is confined to body of a person under supervision. As we use ISM band for transmission of information for WBAN thus it is a huge possibility that the transmission can undergo interference that affect the transmission. Hence there is a major utility of combining cognitive radio with WBAN. In this report, we discuss the role of cognitive radio in WBAN and how this can enhance the transmission of WBAN. We will also discuss various algorithms for sensing and thus will compare them.

I. INTRODUCTION
Wireless body area network is a type of wireless sensor network technology that has confined limits to the body of the person under observation. Being a major area of interest due to variety of advantageous applications like continuous and flexible health monitoring of patients or performance analysis of athletes etc, WBAN is one of the major and most interesting area of study of present.
Reviewing the basics of WBAN, the network is a kind of wireless sensor network that consists of different wireless sensors which can be either mounted on or embedded skin deep into the body of person under observation, thus the domain further increases study scope and improvements relating wearable technology advancement.
The sensors are supposed to sense in real time and the processed data can be recorded as well as
