Multi-channel Distributed MAC protocol for WSN-based wildlife monitoring

Abstract : Several wild animal species are endangered by poaching. As a solution, deploying wireless sensors on animals able to send regular messages and also alert messages has been envisaged recently by several authorities and foundations. In that context, this paper proposes WildMAC, a multichannel, multihop wireless communication protocol for these specific wireless sensor networks that have to collect data from unknown large areas with different QoS requirements. WildMAC is a TDMA based MAC protocol that leverages long range communication properties to propose an efficient data collection mean. Its performance evaluation shows it meets QoS requirements.
