This article reports an ongoing research that proposes an approach to the expansion of sensor-MAC (S-MAC), a cluster-based contention protocol to intelligent medium access control (I-MAC) protocol. I-MAC protocol is designed especially for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). A sensor network uses battery-operated computing and sensing devices. A network of these devices are used in many applications, such as agriculture and environmental monitoring.
