In the current decade, wireless sensor networks are emerging as a peculiar multi-disciplinary research area. Wireless sensor networks are appealing to researchers due to their wide range of application potential in areas such as target detection and tracking, environmental monitoring, industrial process monitoring, and tactical systems. However, lower sensing ranges result in dense networks, which bring the necessity to achieve an efficient medium access control protocol subject to power constraints. As medium access control has a significant effect on the energy consumption, energy efficiency is one of the fundamental research theme in the design of Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols for wireless sensor networks.
