A-MAC: An Adaptive, Anycast MAC Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract

Energy constraints in wireless sensor nodes necessitate the design and development of energy-efficient MAC protocols to arbitrate access to the shared communication medium. While there exists a plethora of sensor MAC protocols, these protocols do not individually vary the duty-cycle of each sensor according to local connectivity status, to maximize energy… (More)
