Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 768)


Wireless sensor networks have been identified as one of the key areas in the field of wireless communication. When an event has occurred, the number of data packets will be generated. A MAC protocol considered for this category of wireless sensor networks, here MAC protocols able to adapt to both light and heavy traffic load situations of the network. Accessible MAC protocols are used for light traffic for the energy efficiency concern. Our proposed systems An Improved Receiver-Centric MAC protocol and Itree-MAC protocol implemented in NS2 Simulator, the significance of this paper is highlight the idle listening, infrequent, and light weight synchronization in wireless sensor networks. Here evaluating the performance analysis of Improved Receiver-Centric MAC protocol and Itree-MAC protocol; considering comparing parameters like throughput, reliability and end-to-end delay in different sensor nodes in wireless sensor networks. Comparing MAC, receiver-centric MAC, Improved Receiver-Centric MAC with Itree-MAC protocol, the results show that IRC-MAC, Itree-MAC protocols are more efficient than the RC-MAC and IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol.
