    Multi-Channel Media Access Control for Wireless Sensor Networks: A Survey

    This paper deals with multi-channel Media Access Control (MAC) protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The authors first give an overview of multi-channel communication in WSNs and propose the classification of existing multi-channel MAC protocols for WSNs. Then, they describe briefly three representative protocols by stating their essential behavior and...

    Design of a TDMA-Based Multi-Channel MAC Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

    In this paper, the authors propose a TDMA-based multi-channel Multiple Access Control (MAC) protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and study its performance. The proposed protocol builds on TFMAC, a MAC protocol proposed in their previous work, but extends it in several ways to improve self-configuration capabilities and autonomy of...

    A Fuzzy Set-Based Approach to Range-Free Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks

    Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) refers to the ability of determining the positions of sensor nodes, with an acceptable accuracy, based on known positions of several anchor nodes. Among the plethora of possible localization schemes, the Received Signal Strength (RSS) based range-free localization techniques have attracted significant research interest...

    CT-MAC: Energy-Efficient Contention-Based MAC Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

    This paper presents Control-Tone MAC (CT-MAC), a scheduled contention-based medium access protocol especially designed for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Similarly to other contention-based MAC protocols with common active periods (e.g. S-MAC, T-MAC, and SCP-MAC), CT-MAC coordinates sensor nodes into sleep/wakeup schedules, allowing them to remain awake only for brief contention...

    CDMA Bus Based On-Chip Interconnect Infrastructure

    As technology scales toward deep submicron, the integration of complete System-on-Chip (SoC) designs consisting of large number of Intellectual Property (IP) blocks (cores) on the same silicon die is becoming technically feasible. Until recently, the design-space exploration for SoCs has been mainly focused on the computational aspects of the problem....
