In this paper we present a novel TDMA-based medium access control (MAC) protocol for wireless sensor networks. Unlike conventional MAC protocols which function independently of the application, we introduce an Adaptive, Information- centric and Lightweight MAC(AI-LMAC) protocol that adapts its operation depending on the requirements of the application. We also present a completely localised data management framework that helps capture information about traffic pat- terns in the network. This information is subsequently used by AI-LMAC to modify its operation accordingly. The data man- agement framework can additionally be used for efficient query dissemination and query optimisation. We present preliminary results showing how the MAC protocol efficiently manages the issues of fairness and latency.
