Survey on MAC Protocol for Wireless Sensor Network
Designing wireless sensor networks with the capability of prolonging network lifetime take the attention of many researchers in wireless network field. The Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are used in a wide range of applications to capture, gather and analyze live environmental data. WSNs are an emerging technology that has become one of the best growing areas in the communication industry. They consist of sensor nodes that use low power consumption which are powered by small replaceable batteries that collect real-world data, process it, and transmit the data by radio frequencies to their destination. The node has limited resources, like limited processing capability, Limited memory and limited battery, energy and etc.
