Abstract— Optimal and Maximized Configurable Power
Saving Protocols for Corona-Based Wireless Sensor Networks.Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are one of the most important ingredients in the Internet of Things. Thus it is vital to design a good power saving protocol, which operates at the medium access control (MAC) layer, for a WSN since sensors are generally battery-powered. On the other hand, organizing a WSN into coronas centered at the sink is a simple < Final Year Projects 2016 > effective technique to achieve low-overhead routing where every sensor needs neither to broadcast beacons nor to maintain routing/neighbor tables. Hence in this paper, we propose an optimal and maximized conﬁgurable power saving protocol, named Green-MAC, for a corona-based WSN, which has the following attractive features.
