This paper proposes an enhanced B-MAC (ENBMAC), a carrier sense Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol with ultra low power operations for wireless sensor networks. Due to battery-operated computing and sensing devices in wireless sensor networks, the development of MAC protocols that efficiently reduce power consumption is an important issue. B-MAC provides bidirectional interfaces such as Clear Channel Assessment (CCA), Low Power Listening (LPL) and uses an adaptive preamble sampling scheme to… CONTINUE READING
