Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have become a leading solution in many important applications such as intrusion detection, target tracking, industrial automation, smart building and so on MAC protocol of wireless sensor network research is the key problem. From the basic ideas, the paper introduces three MAC protocols i.e. Queen-MAC, TC-MAC and OD-MAC protocol in detail, which are analyzed and compared based on performance parameters, and finally summarizes the problems of MAC protocols and possible research direction in future combined with the current research status.
