This paper proposes a multichannel medium access control (MAC) protocol for energy efficient IEEE802.15.4 home area networks that consists of novel allocation and superframe scheduling algorithm that improves the channel selection strategy and the superframe scheduling. It aims to improve the overall reliability and reduce the average delay. The proposed protocol is implemented in IEEE802.15.4 home area network andsimulation results show the proposed protocol outperforms the existing
