[ENG]This project was designed trying to verify the theoretical studies published in the article “Performance Evaluation of MAC Transmission Power Control in Wireless Sensor Networks” . This article presents several analytic methods that allow to computing the energy saving provided by the use of transmission power control (TPC) mechanisms at MAC protocols in wireless sensor networks. It concludes that, when implementing these mechanisms at a protocol such as S-MAC, energy savings could reach up to 10 %. The goal of this project is to develop an experimental platform which allows to objectively evaluate the energy consumption in wireless sensor networks. The project is divided in two main areas; the first one is the implementation of a Transmission Power Control (TPC) mechanism over Sensor-Medium Access Control (S-MAC) in the sensors, while the other one is the need to develop a platform which evaluates the energy savings produced by this implementation. While tests were ...
