Abstract:   (7116 Views)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) comprising of tiny, power-constrained nodes are getting very popular due to their potential uses in wide applications like monitoring of environmental conditions, various military and civilian applications. The critical issue in the node is energy consumption since it is operated using battery, therefore its lifetime should be maximized for effective utilization in various applications. In this paper, a game theory based hybrid MAC protocol (GH-MAC) is proposed to reduce the energy consumption of the nodes. GH-MAC is combined with the game based energy efficient TDMA (G-ETDMA) for intra-cluster communication between the cluster members to head nodes and game theory based nanoMAC (G-nanoMAC) protocol used for inter-cluster communication between head nodes. Performance of GH-MAC protocol is evaluated in terms of energy consumption, delay and compared with conventional MAC schemes. The results obtained using GH-MAC protocol shows that the energy consumtion is enormously reduced and thereby the lifetime of the sensor network is enhanced.
