Executive Summary

Sensors networks are often constrained by limited power and limited communication range. If a sensor receives two messages simultaneously then they collide and both messages become incomprehensible. This paper presents a simple Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) algorithm for assigning time slots to sensors and show that it provides a significant reduction in the number of collisions incurred during communication.
