Abstract

Energy efficiency is an essential requirement in designing a MAC protocol for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) using battery-operated sensor nodes. We proposed a new receiver-initiated MAC protocol, RIX-MAC, based on the X-MAX protocol with asynchronous duty cycles. In this paper, we analyzed the performance of RIX-MAC protocol in terms of throughput, delay, and energy consumption using the model. For modeling the protocol, we used the Markov chain model, derived the transmission and state probabilities, and obtained the equations to solve the performance of throughput, delay, and energy consumption. Our proposed model and analysis are validated by comparing numerical results obtained from the model, with simulation results using NS-2.
