Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Recent advances in wireless technology have brought us closer to the vision of pervasive computing where sensors/actuators can be connected through a wireless network. Due to cost constraints and the dynamic nature of sensor networks, it is undesirable to assume the existence of base stations connected by a wired backbone. In this paper, we present a network architecture suitable for sensor networks along with a medium access control protocol based on Earliest Deadline First.
