Intelligent MAC and Routing Protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks

Murat Dener
Abstract—Energy consumption is one of the major limitations affecting design of Sensor Network. Efficient use of energy by sensor nodes is vital to lifetime of a Sensor Network. Studies on Sensor Networks, which still remain current in academia from its first use to present day, are increasing day by day. However, such studies are often limited to solving a specific problem, and no standards have been issued yet. On the other hand, several methods and techniques can produce positive effect in certain states of the Network as well as negative effects in other states. Considering these factors, Sensor Network should be self-optimized, real-time detect any changes and maintain its optimum state, and sensor nodes should operate in harmony and with minimum workload. A Sensor Network operating in this way will have a longer life cycle and use less power with maximum energy efficiency. This can be achieved by giving sensor nodes as well as Sensor Network comprised of these nodes smart approaches. In this context, this study suggests smart approaches to MAC and routing protocols.

Index Terms—Intelligent systems, MAC protocol, routing protocol, sensor network.
