Design of routing protocols has seen remarkable
advancement in the field of Wireless Body Area Networks
(WBANs).These protocols work to enhance the performance of
WBAN by focusing on routing, energy efficiency and end-to-end
delay. As these protocols can be categorized in a variety of ways
according to the mechanisms and functionalities they follow,
hence it becomes important to understand their principal of
operations. In this research, we have selected some recent
routing protocols in the field of WBAN and presented a
comparative analysis according to the categories on which they
rely. Also a detail analysis of their key advantages and flaws are
also identified in this research.
