In this letter, we suggest APMAC (Adaptive Power Control MAC) for wireless ad hoc networks. APMAC is based on the single channel environment and improves the throughput and the energy efficiency simultaneously. Furthermore, the APMAC prevents the unfair channel starvation among the transmission pairs. We verify the performance of the APMAC through simulations.
