Abstract: Interference is the most important issue in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) as it causes severe degradation during communication. Also, as sensor nodes are power constraint, hence the system is expected to operate for longer duration without any delay during communication. In order to overcome these issue a delay sensitive and interference aware MAC protocol for WSN is proposed. In this study, first MAC protocol is proposed which divides network into layer and assign node to each layer to avoid data loss in the network. Once network is divided to the multi-layer, timeslot is assigned to each node. To utilize the channel efficiently, timeslot steal mechanism is implemented. To avoid interference, a hybrid prioritization scheme is implemented to prioritize the packet queue based on weight of the packet queue and based on the idle time of the prioritized packet.
