Liang Yun, Abhik Roychoudhury, and Tulika Mitra. Timing Analysis of Body Area Network Applications. In 7th International Workshop on Worst-Case Execution Time Analysis (WCET'07). Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs), Volume 6, pp. 1-6, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2007)


Body area network (BAN) applications have stringent timing requirements. The timing behavior of a BAN application is determined not only by the software complexity, inputs, and architecture, but also by the timing behavior of the peripherals. This paper presents systematic timing analysis of such applications, deployed for health-care monitoring of patients staying at home. This monitoring is used to achieve prompt notification of the hospital when a patient shows abnormal vital signs. Due to the safetycritical nature of these applications,worst-case execution time (WCET) analysis is extremely important.
