Executive Summary

Embedded computing systems went through extraordinary evolutions during the past two decades, representing nowadays one of the most promising technologies for improving a wide range of application areas such as energy/resource management, safety, health or entertainment. New sensors and actuators are leading to an unprecedented level of interaction between computing systems and their surrounding physical environment. These embedded computers tend to be networked, often wirelessly, and they are becoming denser, of larger scale and more pervasively deployed. Since the wireless channel is a "Natural resource" which must be shared between this large numbers of embedded computers, the medium access control (MAC) protocol significantly influences the performance of the entire system.
