Energy Analysis of Distributed Route aware Medium access control protocol for Wireless Sensor networks

Authors: Thippeswamy M. N., F. Takawira


In this paper, the proposed new distributed, load balanced, and route aware medium access control protocol for Wireless sensor networks, which employs channel overload detection and channel overload avoidance schemes to conserve energy consumption. In this paper, we present the energy consumption analysis for the proposed medium access control (MAC) protocol. We present the simulation results obtained for both transmit and receive nodes and the overall system energy consumption of the proposed MAC protocol.
