With recent advances in wireless communication, networking, and low power sensor technology, Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) systems have begun to take significant roles in various applications ranging from environmental sensing to mobile healthcare sensing. While some WSN applications only require a limited amount of bandwidth, new emerging applications operate with a notice-ably large amount of data transfers. One way to deal with such applications is to maximize the available capacity by utilizing the use of multiple wireless channels. This work proposes DynaChannAl, a distributed dynamic wireless channel algorithm with the goal of effectively distributing nodes on multiple wireless channels in WSN systems.
