Analysis of Key Industrial WSN MAC Protocols
MetadataShow full item record
This paper looks at two MAC protocols for wireless sensor networksfor use in industrial applications developed at the Ubicom Lab, at theUniversity of Ulsan. A theoretical comparison of the MAC protocolsare performed to understand more about the benefits and downsidesto both of them, and experimental scenarios to validate the theoreticalanalysis are suggested. Theoretical analysis suggests that BigMAC hasan advantage in environments with high interference and frequent linkbreaks, while I-MAC has an advantage when the network topology isstable.
