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 savings. In this paper, we propose A-MAC an Adaptive, Anycast MAC protocol for low-powered wireless sensor networks. It utilizes: (i) a… CONTINUE READING
