A Distributed Power Control Based MAC Protocol for Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks

Abstract

Based on the method of distributed power control, a MAC protocol used for underwater acoustic sensor networks (UW-ASN) has been proposed in this paper. It dynamically controls and adjusts data transmission power to overcome near-far problem in the networks adopting multiple access technique of CDMA. And it also improves traditional handshake mechanism to… (More)
