With rapid developments in the community mesh networks and wireless sensor networks research, the need for more efficient channel access techniques for multi-hop wireless networks has become eminent. In this work, we propose a novel hybrid channel access scheme that spatially limits the contention in the network such that 2-hop neighbors access the channel… CONTINUE READING
