Energy-efficient MAC protocol for wireless LANs with WiFi sensors

   | Nov 20, 2021


More and more mobile computing devices such as smartphones with limited battery power are being used in IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs, and WiFi sensors with very limited battery power are expected to get Internet access through wireless LANs in the near future. We propose an efficient MAC (Medium Access Control) protocol so that WiFi sensors and mobile devices are connected to APs (Access Points) in IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs in an energy-efficient manner.
