Performance Evaluation of Wireless Sensor Network With Hybrid Channel Access Mechanism

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, a hybrid channel access mechanism is proposed for the wireless sensor network that considers the channel access procedure of IEEE 802.15.4 and combines the binary exponential back-off mechanism of IEEE 802.11 due to packet collision of nodes after successful channel assessment. Taking the backlogged nodes due to collision, an extended linear feedback model is developed and a discrete-time Markov chain model is designed to analyze the successful and failure probabilities of the system model of the wireless sensor network. Besides, an energy consumption model for the one hop wireless sensor network is developed based on the authors' models and hybrid channel access mechanism.
