S-TDMA: A New MAC Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract

Due to the fact that sensor nodes are untethered and unattended, energy management is a critical issue in communication mechanism of a wireless sensor network. In this paper, we address this problem and propose a novel solution based on media access control technique. Our protocol STDMA (for Sensor-Time Division Multiple Access) exploits the inherent… (More)
