A simulation framework for connecting in-body nano communication with out-of-body devices

Abstract

We present a novel simulation framework bridging the gap between in-body nano communication and out-of-body body area network (BAN). We assume nanobots freely flowing within the blood system. Their mobility can be modeled using the BloodVoyagerS module. The communication channels are modeled using proximity (nanobot to nanobot), proximity and ultrasonic communication (nanobot to a gateway), and standard IEEE 802.15.4 for BAN communication. In our simulation framework, we rely on ns-3 to model all the three independent communication channels to, for the first time, study the end-to-end communication performance from nanobots to a connected host system. We consider the system a fundamental basis for more advanced studies of such integrated and very heterogeneous communication systems.
