Energy efficiency is widely understood to be one of the dominant considerations for wireless sensor networks. Based on historical data and technology trends, the receiver energy consumption will dominate all energy, to the point that for the majority of applications, power management research must focus on receiver efficiency. By modeling several popular MAC layer protocols, we derive bounds on performance for receiver efficiency. In particular, we analyze four abstract models, synchronous…

REGULATED RR-MAC PROTOCOL FOR WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS
TLDR
Inspired by EM- MAC, RR-MAC applies central registry to minimize power consumption in wireless sensor-network applications that require store-and-forward processing as data moves through the network.
Energy efficient mac layer design for wireless sensor networks
TLDR
This dissertation identifies the three major sources of energy wastage in communications, i.e., idle listening, overhearing, and packet retransmissions, and proposes three mechanisms to optimize the energy consumption while maintaining high throughput and low latency.
Chameleon: On the Energy Efficiency of Exploiting Multiple Frequencies in Wireless Sensor Networks
TLDR
Chameleon is presented, which assigns channels based on lightweight estimation of channel utilization and adapts the duty cycle of node reception relative to the incoming traffic and improves energy efficiency and channel utilization not only among users internal to the network, but also in the presence of external users that share the spectrum.

TLDR
This work modeling several state-of-the-art MAC layer protocols presents bounds on the achievable capacity of random wireless networks for single channel and multiple channel cases and suggests that receiver-centric synchronous scheme has the best performance.
Asynchronous blind MAC protocol for wireless sensor networks
TLDR
This paper proposes an asynchronous MAC protocol based on blind rendez-vous and random wake-up, based on a modification of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard, where activities start at a random time within each activity cycle.
Topics in Energy Efficiency of Low-Power Wireless Sensor Networks
TLDR
This dissertation presents techniques centering the Medium Access Control (MAC) and routing layers to enhance energy efficiency across a wide range of traffic: from when traffic is ultra-low and interference-free communication can be safely assumed, to when traffic becomes non-trivial and the explicit consideration of interference becomes necessary, and to finally override the mind set on interference by exploiting interference rather than avoiding it.
High-Performance Communication Protocols for Asynchronous Duty-Cycling Wireless Networks
TLDR
This thesis presents a new single-channel energy-efficient MAC protocol, called the Predictive-Wakeup MAC (PW-MAC), which allows each node to wake up asynchronously at randomized times, while enabling senders to predict receiver wakeup times to save energy.
Chameleon: On the Energy Efficiency of Exploiting Frequencies in Duty-Cycled Wireless Sensor Networks
TLDR
Chameleon is presented, which assigns channels based on on-demand estimation of channel utilization and which adapts the duty cycle of node reception relative to the incoming traffic, and which improves energy efficiency and channel utilization among users internal to the network, but also in the presence of external users that share the spectrum.
The configuration space of duty-cycled CSMA-based wireless MACs

S-MAC uses three novel techniques to reduce energy consumption and support self-configuration, and applies message passing to reduce contention latency for sensor-network applications that require store-and-forward processing as data move through the network.
Power-saving protocols for IEEE 802.11-based multi-hop ad hoc networks
TLDR
This paper considers the design of power-saving protocols for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) that allow mobile hosts to switch to a low-power sleep mode and proposes three power management protocols, namely dominating-awake-interval, periodically-fully-aw Wake-Interval, and quorum-based protocols, which are directly applicable to IEEE 802.11-based MANETs.
Versatile low power media access for wireless sensor networks
TLDR
B-MAC's flexibility results in better packet delivery rates, throughput, latency, and energy consumption than S-MAC, and the need for flexible protocols to effectively realize energy efficient sensor network applications is illustrated.
Energy-Efficient Medium Access Control
TLDR
This report will study the medium access layer, which is part of the Data Link layer and sits directly on top of the Physical layer (layer 1) of the OSI model and has a large impact on the overall energy consumption and hence, the lifetime of a node.
Asynchronous wakeup for ad hoc networks
TLDR
Simulation studies indicate that the proposed asynchronous wakeup protocol is quite effective under various traffic characteristics and loads: energy saving can be as high as 70%, while the packet delivery ratio is comparable to that without power management.

Simulation studies using the proposed extensible on-demand power management framework with the dynamic source routing protocol show a reduction in energy consumption near 50% when compared to a network without power management under both long-lived CBR traffic and on-off traffic loads, with comparable throughput and latency.

RICH-DP is the first MAC protocol based on a receiver-initiated collision-avoidance handshake that does not require carrier sensing or the assignment of unique codes to nodes in order to ensure collision-free reception of data at the intended receivers in the presence of hidden terminals.

Measurements from two wireless implementations are used to show that removing the sender's nondeterminism from the critical path in this way produces high-precision clock agreement, and a significant improvement over the Network Time Protocol (NTP) under similar conditions.
