"IR-UWB technology as a next generation of the IEEE802.15.4 standard is a promising solutions for WSN due to its various advantages such as its robustness to severe multipath fading even in indoor environments, its low cost and complexity, and low energy consumption. To implement such a solution, the authors need a suitable Mac protocol to exploit the specific features of this technology. WideMac was presented as a novel MAC protocol designed for wireless sensor networks using impulse radio ultra wide band transceivers due to its low power consumption."
