This paper describes the implementation architecture and performance analysis of nanoMAC, a CSMA/CA based medium access control protocol, which is specifically designed for high density wireless sensor networks. We empirically show that nanoMAC performs with high reliability in a variety of network traffic conditions in single and multihop scenarios. For energy efficient operation and minimizing idle-overhearing, nanoMAC uses a specialized sleep algorithmWe also show results from a comparative study of nanoMAC with B-MAC in terms of performance measures.
