This paper presents a duty cycling based cross layer MAC protocol for wireless sensor networks (WSNs), referred to as BulkMAC, to support the transmission of multihop multiple packet flows during a single sleep period. We show that without the proposed cross-layered approach, the sensor nodes will spend significant energy and induce longer delays. The proposed protocol cleverly schedules the channel allocation using the upper routing layer information. We implement our protocol in ns2.29 and… CONTINUE READING
