The evolution of Wireless Sensor Networks has led to the development of protocols that must comply with their new restrictions while being efficient in terms of energy consumption and time. We focus on a collision resolution protocol, the so-called Two Cell Sorted (2CS-WSN). We propose three different ways to improve its performance by minimizing the collision resolution time or the energy consumption. After evaluating these proposals and carrying out the comparison with the original protocol, we recommend an improvement to the protocol which reduces the elapsed time by early $8\% $ and the number of retries and conflicts more than $40\% $.
