This paper exploits the directionality in the wireless sensor network (WSN) by using single-beam and multibeam directional antennas. We mount a multibeam smart antenna (MBSA) with a main sink cluster head (CH), whereas other child sink CHs and end devices use singlebeam sector antennas. The unique reception and transmission property of these antennas requires a sufficient modification to suit omni mode MAC protocols. We choose IEEE 802.15.4 as the platform for the proposed MAC design and… CONTINUE READING
