STUMP: Exploiting Position Diversity in the Staggered TDMA Underwater MAC Protocol

Abstract

In this paper, we propose the Staggered TDMA Underwater MAC Protocol (STUMP), a scheduled, collision free TDMA-based MAC protocol that leverages node position diversity and the low propagation speed of the underwater channel. STUMP uses propagation delay information to overlap node communication and increase channel utilization. Our work yields several… (More)
