Wireless sensor networking is an emerging technology that has a wide range of potential applications including environment monitoring, smart spaces, medical systems, and robotic exploration. Large numbers of distributed nodes that organize themselves into a multihop wireless network. Like in all shared-medium networks, medium access control (MAC) is an important technique that enables the successful operation of the network. One fundamental task of the MAC protocol is to avoid collisions from interfering nodes. There are many MAC protocols that have been developed for wireless voice and data communication networks. To design a good MAC protocol for the wireless sensor networks, we have considered the following attributes. The first is the energy efficiency. As stated above, sensor nodes are likely to be battery powered, and it is often very difficult to change or recharge batteries for these nodes. In fact, someday we expect some nodes to be cheap enough that they are discarded rather than recharged. Prolonging network lifetime for these nodes is a critical issue. Another important attribute is scalability and adaptivity to changes in network size, node density and topology. Some nodes may die over time; some new nodes may join later; some nodes may move to different locations. A good MAC protocol should gracefully accommodate such network changes. Other typically important attributes including fairness, latency, throughput, and bandwidth utilization may be secondary in sensor networks.
