In this paper, we present a low latency media access control scheme which we call LLMAC (Low Latency MAC) for event-driven wireless sensor networks (WSN). In this kind of WSN, sensors do not regularly send data to the sink. They send a burst data only when there is an event in the monitoring area. It takes time for this burst data to arrive to the sink. Normally, these events are critical and we hope to obtain the information on the event in the shortest delay. Hence, the latency is considered… CONTINUE READING
