Abstract

In this paper, we propose a traffic adaptive mechanism that controls the receiver's wakeup periods based on the generated traffic amounts. The proposed control mechanism is designed for military, wild animal monitoring, and forest fire surveillance applications. In these environments, a low-rate data transmission is usually required between sensor nodes. However, continuous data is generated when events occur. Therefore, legacy mechanisms are ineffective for these applications. Our control mechanism showed a better performance in energy efficiency compared to the RI-MAC owing to the elimination of the sender node's idle listening.
