Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) possess highly constrained energy resources. The existing Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols for WSNs try to either minimize the energy consumption or the latency, which are conflicting objectives, or find a trade-off between them. They fail to achieve the minimum energy × latency, which ensures that transmission should occur such that both the energy consumption and latency are minimized. We propose a novel Battery-aware Energy-efficient MAC protocol to… CONTINUE READING
