  • A tool for rapid MAC protocols prototyping and designing for wireless sensor networks 

    Amorós Martínez, Luis Miguel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-09-25)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs)consists of several resource constrained sensor nodes distributed over an specific geographical area. WSNs are typically energy constraint due to the fact the sensor nodes are battery ...
