Abstract

In this paper, we propose an underwater propagation delay-aware medium access control protocol and evaluate the performance of the proposed protocol. In the proposed propagation delay-aware medium access control protocol, a sink node can restore the received RTS frames that are not piled up in a slot time. We analyze and compare the performance of the proposed underwater propagation delay-aware medium access control protocol with that of the conventional medium access control protocol in various environments.
