Abstract

A wireless sensor network is composed of numerous nodes distributed over an area to collect information. The sensor nodes communicate among themselves through the wireless channel to self-organize into a multi-hop network and forward the collected data towards base stations. Each node has sensors, embedded processors and low-power radios, and is normally battery operated. As these nodes are placed in such conditions that charging or replacing their battery are almost impossible energy consumption becomes a major constraint. Low power capacities of sensor nodes result in very limited coverage and communication range compared to other mobile devices. Hence, to successfully cover the target area, sensor networks are composed of large number of nodes. Employing energy efficient, sensor-specific MAC protocols is of necessity for sensor nets. In this paper, we surveyed some existing MAC protocols for WSN. The goal is to study MAC design, and to identify important design issues that allow us to improve the overall performances.
