Abstract: Wireless body area networks (WBANs) contain many miniature sensor devices. These frameworks are constructed to transfer the sensed physiological signals continuously. It is highly complex to design a WBAN protocol with mobile and multiple sink nodes. The conventional algorithms did not fulfil the requirements of the application completely. Focusing on lower energy consumption, this paper aimed to propose an energy-aware routing protocol in WBAN by employing the mobile and multiple sink nodes. The hybridised forms of the well-efficient heuristic algorithm are developed as hybrid barnacle mating dingo optimisation (HBMDO) for optimal cluster head selection. Here, the optimal cluster heads are chosen with multi-objective constraints like distance, energy, delay, transmission load, path loss, node trust, and packet delivery ratio. The designed routing methods in WBAN thus secured efficient performance when correlated with the existing routing approaches regarding energy consumption and network lifetime.

Keywords: wireless body area networks; hybrid barnacles mating dingo optimisation; optimal cluster head selection; energy aware routing protocol; multi-objective constrains; energy consumption; network lifetime; mobile and multiple sink node.
