Wireless sensor networks usually operate under light traffic loads. However, when an event is detected, a large volume of data may be generated and delivered to the sink. The demand for simultaneous data transmission may cause severe channel collision and thus decrease communication throughput in contention-based medium access control (MAC) protocols. In this paper, we introduce a novel receiver-centric data transmission paradigm, which takes advantage of the tree structure that is naturally… CONTINUE READING
