Wireless sensor networks offers a wide range of applications that can be used in includes environmental monitoring, health structural monitoring, high end applications and security. However, WSN requires a constant power source. To operate efficiently various proposed MAC schemes have been proposed with the aim of achieving low energy consumption or high throughput depending on the application. This thesis proposes a scheme that offers both low energy consumption and high network throughput to enhance MAC protocols which are based on the theory of S-MAC protocol. The proposed scheme utilizes two control packets (particularly SYNC and RTS) and mix there functionalities in one control packet (shall be called SEEK) then this packet will be forwarded to the down stream nodes in a multi-hop fashion. Then apply this method on a MAC protocol that is based on S-MAC theory. The simulation results show that it is feasible to achieve low energy consumption using the proposed algorithm presented in this thesis. In conclusion, this thesis has shown that it is feasible to manipulate the construction of control packets to achieve better operation for a MAC protocol.
