In this paper, we propose a light-weight and adaptive scheduling-based media access control protocol (LASMAC) for wireless sensor networks. Our primary goal is to achieve an energy-efficient and traffic-adaptive TDMA-based MAC protocol with low-overhead slot reservation. In our protocol, each node dynamically and flexibly assigns slots by exchanging… CONTINUE READING
