Medium access control for multihop wireless sensor networks (WSNs) must be energy efficient because the battery-operated nodes are not practical to recharge. We give constructions for ternary schedules in which each node is in one of three states: transmitting, receiving, or asleep. For each hop (vi, vj), communication is effective only when vi is transmitting, vj is receiving, and no other node in...
