I am working on transmitting ECG signals over wireless body area network based on IEEE 802.15.4 standard. To reduce the BER and increase the signal reconstruction quality, I think that I need to employ an error detection and correction algorithm. Could you please suggest a suitable one for this application?
This paper https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/7288370 considers using convolutional code for what seems to be a very closely related problem. As a starting point, It is probably worth a read.
