This paper presents a survey of the most recent works regarding MAC protocols for applications of wireless sensor networks. It presents two main groups of the MAC protocols, e.g. a contention-based and a TDMA-based (schedule-based). Moreover, the rational selection of the MAC protocols for surveillance applications is proposed. It is envisaged that such selection may also be helpful for FPGA-based wireless sensor nodes
