Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are characterized by various traffic loads of unicast, broadcast and multicast transmissions. The energy consumption behaviour relies heavily both on the load and type of the traffic. In this poster, the authors present a Traffic aware Medium Access Control (TrawMAC) protocol for WSNs, which is tailored to the type and load of the generated traffic in order to result in an energy efficient operation. The authors would like to present the operational cycle details of the MAC protocol, the rationale behind the various design aspects and the energy consumption performance gains as compared to the other widely used MAC protocols in sensor networks. The poster will be supported by a 'table-top' demonstration of the protocol on Moteiv Inc.'s TelosB sensor node platform.
