Abstract:We present a novel TDMA-based medium access control (MAC) protocol for wireless sensor networks. Unlike conventional MAC protocols, which function independently of the application, we introduce an adaptive, information-centric and lightweight MAC (AI-LMAC) protocol that adapts its operation depending on the requirements of the application. We also present a completely localised data management framework that helps capture information about traffic patterns in the network. This information is subsequently used by AI-LMAC to modify its operation. The data management-framework can additionally be used for efficient query dissemination and query optimisation. We present preliminary results showing how the MAC protocol efficiently manages the issues of fairness and latency.
