In this paper, we investigate the cross-layer design of medium access control (MAC) protocols and distributed source coding (DSC). We closely model the interaction between the source compression and the medium access control layer for sensor network applications and determine the parameters that are most relevant to both the layers. Specifically, we exploit the spatio-temporal redundancy in the measurements at the sensors and adjust the MAC parameters accordingly. We use short code block… CONTINUE READING
