Abstract: Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol is one of the major elements in the construction of the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), and it is used for system governing of some portion in which when and how two autonomous neighboring nodes initiate their particular receivers for the direct interactions. Generally, data replace has dependably been started by the node keen to hand-off information, for example, the sender. Though, the Receiver Initiated (RI)model has produced a different course of research, conceding many new MAC protocols. Inside such a model, the receiver is the one responsible for beginning an immediate communication with a qualified sender. This takes into consideration of new helpful properties to be fulfilled, novel plans to be initiated and new difficulties with being handled. This article proposes a complete review of all the MAC protocol related to RI classification. Specifically, remembering the fundamental difficulties that RI-MAC protocols are intended to manage, this paper analyses and discusses the various protocols as indicated by regular highlights and plan objectives.
