Basic architecture of a wireless sensor network

In Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), nodes have to share the medium for data transmission. Therefore, Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol has been developed to provide collision free access through this common channel. Standard MAC protocols for WSNs can be categorized into synchronous, asynchronous and hybrid. Synchronous MAC protocols, specify the duration of wake-up and sleep time to reduce the unnecessary communication time and energy wasted in idle listening. One major drawback of these protocols is that they are highly dependent…
