Ambient intelligence systems consist of a variety of nodes and applications with different communication needs. To fill these needs, we present MacZ, an adaptive, hybrid Mac layer for wireless ad-hoc networks. MacZ establishes a time-synchronized communication medium, with synchronization across multiple hops. Based on this synchronization, MacZ offers both reservation-based and priority-based communication, and energy saving mechanisms.
