Large wireless ad hoc and sensor networks impose tight constraints on cost and power dissipation, so nodes usually adopt a single transceiver approach. Since a single transceiver cannot assess the status of existing transmissions, it wastes valuable time and energy on handshaking packets and corrupted packets. To avoid such overhead, we propose a single transceiver approach based on ultra wideband (UWB) and a companion medium access control (MAC) layer based on busy tone multiple access (BTMA… CONTINUE READING
