C-MAC: Model-Driven Concurrent Medium Access Control for Wireless Sensor Networks
— This paper presents C-MAC, a new MAC protocol designed to achieve high-throughput bulk communication for dataintensive sensing applications. C-MAC exploits concurrent wireless channel access based on empirical power control and physical interference models. Nodes running C-MAC estimate the level of interference based on the physical Signal-to-Interference-plusNoise-Ratio (SINR) model and adjust the transmission power accordingly for concurrent channel access. C-MAC employs a block-based communication mode that not only amortizes the overhead of channel assessment, but also improves the probability that multiple nodes within the interference range of each other can transmit concurrently. C-MAC has been implemented in TinyOS
