Abstract

Industrial process automation and control is a promising application domain of wireless sensor and actuator networks (WSAN). This type of application requires reliable and timely data delivery which is inherently difficult to achieve in wireless communication. In this paper, we present a MAC protocol for the aforementioned application domain. The protocol excels in simplicity compared with WirelessHART standard as no central network management is needed.
