Life Time Based Analysis of MAC Protocols of Wireless Ad Hoc Networks in WSN Applications

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are emerging because of the developments in wireless communication technology and miniaturization of the hardware. WSN consists of a large number of low-cost, low-power, multifunctional sensor nodes to monitor physical conditions, such as temperature, sound, vibration, pressure, motion, etc. The MAC protocol to be used in the sensor networks must be energy efficient and this should aim at conserving the energy during its operation. In this paper, with the focus of analyzing the MAC protocols used in wireless Ad hoc networks to WSN, simulation experiments were conducted in Global Mobile Simulator (GloMoSim) software.
