Wireless communication in a car has several advantages, given that demanded safety and real-time requirements are fulfilled. This paper presents a wireless MAC protocol designed for the needs of automotive and industrial applications. The proposed MAC protocol provides special support for network traffic prioritization in order to guarantee worst-case message delays for a set of high-prioritized nodes. The performance is further analyzed with a network simulator and compared with the IEEE 802.15.4 standard CSMA/CA protocol.
