This paper presents integrated MAC/routing solutions for wireless sensor networks. At the MAC layer, every node accesses the channel according to its own cost by means of properly defined cost-dependent access probabilities. Costs are used to capture the suitability of a node to act as the relay and may depend on several factors such as residual energies, link conditions, queue state, etc. Our cost-aware MAC discriminates nodes right in the channel access phase by therefore assisting the… CONTINUE READING
