This paper presents the performance analysis of the wireless medium access control (WMAC) protocol and the remote frame medium access control (RFMAC) protocol for a wireless control area network (WCAN). These two MAC protocols are suggested for distributed and centralised wireless communications respectively, as part of the complete WCAN project. The performances of the protocols are evaluated by simulating the models of the protocols using set of signals called the “SAE benchmark”. The benchmark table provides an example to illustrate the application of control area network (CAN) system. This paper discusses the applicability of the wireless MAC protocols and validates its usefulness for real-time communications based on the parameters in the benchmark table
