Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of a large number of sensor nodes deployed in a wide area for monitoring applications. For some of these applications, as pipeline or road monitoring, wireless sensor nodes have to be deployed in a linear manner. We refer to these WSNs as Linear Sensor Networks (LSNs). Due to specificity of LSNs, MAC protocol designed for WSNs, as contention or TDMA based protocols, are often not suitable. Furthermore, wireless node deployment can provide a certain form of redundancy to prevent link or node failures. In this paper, we propose a token based MAC protocol for linear sensor networks in order to improve the network performance. We evaluate the effect of the redundancy on the number of packets delivered to the sink. We show that the redundancy induces a significant improvement both on the delivered traffic and on the FIFO queue size of the nodes.
