Title

MDOTS: A Multi-session Delay-aware Opportunistic MAC Protocol for Underwater Sensor Networks

Abstract

Underwater acoustic networking is a developing technology with the goal of monitoring and exploring the Earth’s oceans. While terrestrial wireless networks use radio waves, underwater networks use acoustic waves as their means of communication. Underwater Acoustic Sensor Network (UW-ASN) protocols must work around the long propagation delays and high bit error rates which differentiate acoustic from terrestrial network links. To date, many underwater Media Access Control (MAC) protocols have been proposed to alleviate limitations caused by severely limited bandwidth and long propagation latency of acoustic waves.
