Energy Efficient Medium Access Control for Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper aims to design energy efficient Medium Access Control (MAC) for IEEE 802.15.4 based Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). This is achieved by replacing the currently existing common-range maximum transmission power with the concept of dynamic and adaptive transmission power control. Various parameters like Link Quality, Received Signal Strength, MAC collisions, are considered for exercising the control on transmit power.
