A Light-Weight Channel Rendezvous Scheduling for Multi-Channel Medium Access in Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors present an efficient channel rendezvous (i.e., sender and receiver communicate on the same channel) scheduling for multi-channel Medium Access Control (MAC) in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The proposed scheme mainly targets to implement an efficient medium access control that can cope-up and adapt with the mostly available dynamic and diverse traffic environments of WSNs. To do so, the duty-cycle (periodic wake-up and sleep under low traffic) and multi-channel (at heavy traffic) concepts are applied for the proposed channel rendezvous and medium access design.
