CoAP-based group mobility management protocol for the Internet-of-Things in WBAN environment - 2018

CoAP-Based Group Mobility Management Protocol For The Internet-Of-Things In Wban Environment

Research Area:  Internet of Things


The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) has been widely used, as the number of embedded sensors or devices increases. To support mobility management in web based Internet-of-Things environment is critical issue. For this purpose, a CoAP-based mobility management protocol, named CoMP has been proposed, but this protocol was designed for a single sensor node mobility. However, it does not perform well in group-based mobility. To overcome this limitation, we propose a CoAP-based group mobility management protocol, named CoMP-G. In the proposed scheme, one of the body sensor will function as a coordinator and it will exchange all the control messages with web-of-things mobility management system (WMMS) on behalf of other body sensors. Besides, each WMMS maintains the information of the group of body sensors. From the numerical analysis, we proved that the proposed scheme gives the best performance in terms of total signaling and handover delay from the existing CoMP protocol.
