Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consists of battery operated sensing and computing devices deployed for monitoring applications. With the advent of new technologies WSNs are providing a new class of information to human beings. In most cases the networks were stationary but as an evolutionary step the WSNs have to consider mobility. This new class of sensor networks is mobile wireless sensor networks. E.g. moving robots and surveillance aircrafts. Nodes share a communication channel for communication. To share communication channel the establishment of a MAC protocol is required in the sensor nodes.
