A Survey of MAC Protocols for Sensor Networks [chapter]

Piyush Naik, Krishna M. Sivalingam
Wireless Sensor Networks  
In this chapter, we continue the discussion on medium access control protocols designed for wireless sensor networks. This builds upon the background material and protocols presented in Chapter 4. We first present protocols that are based on random access techniques such as Carrier Sense Multiple Access. These include the Sift protocol, the T-MAC protocol and other protocols. The second set of protocols are based on static access and scheduling mechanisms. These include the UNPF framework,
