The field of Wireless Body Area Sensor Networks has foreseen many challenges in the past couple of decades. The development of simulations tools has made it very viable to design and enhance new ideas without being hazardous to any living being. This thesis is a step towards the betterment of human beings. People have always suffered from mysterious diseases and pains. Medical Science is always there to solve the problems with human’s health. Fatigue is also a very common issue with humans. Normally people who perform strenuous exercises and do hard duties complain about fatigue. Now a days, we are able to find the parameters that can measure fatigue. Lactic acid level in blood is the most accurate way of measuring fatigue. In this thesis, a protocol named FAtigue MEasurement (FAME) is proposed. We chose soccer players and soldiers for fatigue measurement. We measure fatigue by the help of implanted and on-body sensors. The results from the sensors form a composite parameter for fatigue measurement. All sensors use a threshold value on which they transmit a fatigue message towards the Base Station (BS). In case of soccer players, the BSs are placed on the boundaries of the ground and for soldiers they are also wearable like the sensors. Our proposed protocol FAME for players is compared with another protocol and it is revealed through results that FAME is better in both throughput and propagation delay profiles. FAME for soldiers is checked for
three types of mobility models. The results show the effectiveness of our proposed protocol.
In the final section of our work, we also give a mechanism to provide relief to the players and soldiers from fatigue. The mechanism help in two ways, provide relief to the muscles and recharge the implanted sensors, as it works. It is shown through simulation results that about 68 % voltage gain is achieved by the help of this mechanism.
