Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are applied to different types of applications because of flexible and easy installation of sensor nodes. However, due to limited energy in the sensor nodes, so it is suitable for an application with low throughput requirement unlike cellular networks and mobile ad hoc networks. WSNs are battery dependency, there have been many methods used for efficiently utilizing battery of the sensor nodes, therefore increasing network lifetime. In existing they used joint contention and sleep control method.
