Multi-MAC: A Multiple MAC Network Stack Architecture for TinyOS

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Due to the extreme energy requirements often found in sensor networks and the fact that these sensor networks are being used for an increasingly wide variety of applications, there currently exist many different sensor network MAC protocols each optimised for a different set of application requirements. Since these MAC protocols are not compatible with each other, there is generally no interoperability between sensor networks. This lack of interoperability becomes a severe problem when connectivity between sensor networks is required.
