Performance evaluation of the PFSC based MAC protocol for WSN employing UAV in rician fading

Abstract

This paper proposes a novel and promising MAC protocol applied for the new wireless sensor network based data collection applications that coordinate with an unmanned aerial vehicle (WSN-UAV). In this system, before communicating with the UAV by the CDMA-based transmission technique, the active sensors are divided into a number of sub groups with an… (More)
