Wireless sensor networks (WSN) with a single data collection node or ‘sink’ play major role in data acquisition (DAQ) and control systems such as smart buildings. These ‘many-to-one’ networks have unique challenges in addition to regular energy concern issues. For example, nodes closer to the sink experience high traffic and drain faster. In this paper, a priority based, distributed, quasi-planned Medium Access Control (MAC) scheduling algorithm is suggested for such network architectures. The…

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.

An adaptive energy-efficient MAC protocol for wireless sensor networks

T-MAC, a contention-based Medium Access Control protocol for wireless sensor networks, introduces an adaptive duty cycle in a novel way: by dynamically ending the active part of it to handle load variations in time and location.
