In-body nanonetwork routing based on MANET and THz

Marc Stelzner, Fabian Busse, Sebastian Ebers


Devices at the nanoscale are envisioned to be used in medical applications to detect and treat diseases within a human body. However, due to its severe resource constraints, a nanoscale device might not execute complex tasks on its own. For this, we envision a medical nanonetwork, comprising an in-body network built of nanonodes and a Body Area Network (BAN) built of macroscale devices coordinating and controlling the nanonodes. Due to the characteristics of the in-body network and its nodes, conventional routing protocols for macroscale mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET) are not directly applicable and novel approaches are needed. However, since a nanonetwork shares some characteristics of macroscale MANETs, we identified promising protocols and evaluated their suitability for nanonetworks using THz communication. We define requirements for their applicability and compare their performance.
