  • Zero-power design for Smart Dust networks

    This paper addresses the low-power design of distributed sensor networks for intelligent measurement. We present a method for system clock optimization based on behavioural requirements and a power-saving mode. Essentially, the suggested approach minimizes the power consumption and provides longer battery lifetimes. In addition, the method improves the electromagnetic compatibility which is crucial for cubic-millimeter nodes. The zero-power theme goes on with passive reflector communication systems. We discuss an approach for zero-power orientation of corner-cube retroreflectors.

  • Industrial IEEE802.15.4e networks: Performance and trade-offs

    Time Synchronized Channel Hopping (TSCH) is a technique that enables ultra reliable and ultra low-power wireless multi-hop networks, and in which communication is orchestrated by a schedule. When building that schedule, one can cleanly trade off between latency, power consumption, throughput, and reliability. TSCH technology is commonplace in industrial applications, with increasing momentum to apply it to other application domains. This paper is the first to present a model that estimates the performance of a complete network. This model is applied to SmartMesh IP, a commercial TSCH product. The parameters of different classes of use cases for low-power mesh networks are presented, and the estimation model is used to evaluate the applicability of TSCH technology to those cases. This paper indicates how TSCH networks can be used in a wide range of applications: from urban applications which require a decade of battery lifetime, to high-density smart building networks with tens of nodes in the same radio space, and to deep multi-hop networks in an industrial setting.

  • A new energy efficient and fault-tolerant protocol for data propagation in Smart Dust networks using varying transmission range

    In this work we propose a new energy efficient and fault tolerant protocol for data propagation in wireless sensor networks, the variable transmission range protocol (VTRP). The basic idea of data propagation in VTRP is the varying range of data transmissions, i.e., we allow the transmission range to increase in various ways. Thus data propagation in our protocol exhibits high fault- tolerance (by bypassing obstacles or faulty sensors) and increases network lifetime (since critical sensors, i.e. close to the control center are not overused). As far as we know, it is the first time varying transmission range is used. We implement the protocol and perform an extensive experimental evaluation and comparison to a representative protocol (LTP) of several important performance measures with a focus on energy consumption. Our findings indeed demonstrate that our protocol achieves significant improvements in energy efficiency and network lifetime.

These protocols are a complement to FlexRay's native communication services, which do not provide sufficient fault tolerance for safety-critical applications. A reliability evaluation of the proposed protocols carried out with the help of the probabilistic model checker PRISM shows that the proposed protocols can achieve reliability levels suitable for safety-critical applications.

  • Intelligent Operators for Localisation of Dynamic Smart Dust Networks

    Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) of Smart dust motes are becoming increasingly effective in environmental monitoring applications. In some applications, data gathered via WSN are only useful when combined with individual mote positions and time-stamps; if the motes are not static, it is important to find methods for their 3D location estimation from available RSSI signal data. Usually termed 'Localisation', this problem is made more complex when the positions of the motes are subject to external forces. Here we extend our previous work on solving this problem with evolutionary algorithms; we experiment with 'geometric-awareness' operators that constrain the positions a WSN mote can occupy to those that have a better probability of maximally contributing to the chromosome fitness. A hybrid comprising the specialised and standard operators is also tested. We conclude that this research direction offers a viable basis for a heuristically directed evolutionary system capable of suitably accurate 3D localisation, thus increasing the possibilities for viable WSN applications.

  • Energy efficient protocols for sensing multiple events in Smart Dust networks

    Wireless sensor networks are comprised of a vast number of ultra-small, autonomous computing and communication devices, with restricted energy, that cooperate to accomplish a large sensing task. In this work: a) we propose extended versions of two data propagation protocols for such networks: the sleep-awake probabilistic forwarding protocol (SW-PFR) and the hierarchical threshold sensitive energy efficient network protocol (H-TEEN). These non- trivial extensions improve the performance of the original protocols, by introducing sleep-awake periods in the PFR protocol to save energy, and introducing a hierarchy of clustering in the TEEN protocol to better cope with large networks; b) we implemented the two protocols and performed an extensive simulation comparison of various important measures of their performance with a focus on energy consumption; c) we investigate in detail the relative advantages and disadvantages of each protocol; and d) we discuss a possible hybrid combination of the two protocols towards optimizing certain goals.

  • A sleep-awake protocol for information propagation in smart dust networks

    Smart dust is a set of a vast number of ultra-small fully autonomous computing and communication devices, with very restricted energy and computing capabilities, that co-operate to quickly and efficiently accomplish a large sensing task. Smart dust can be very useful in practice i.e. in the local detection of a remote crucial event and the propagation of data reporting its realization. In this work we continue our effort towards the research on smart dust from a basic algorithmic point of view. Under a simple but realistic model for smart dust we present an interesting problem, which is how to propagate efficiently information on an event detected locally. Then we present anew smart dust protocol, which we call the "Sleep-Awake" protocol, for information propagation that explicitly uses the energy saving features (i.e. the alteration of sleeping and awake time periods) of the smart dust particles. By using both some simple probabilistic analysis and extensive experiments, we provide some first concrete results for the success probability and the time and energy efficiency of the protocol, in terms of parameters of the smart dust network. We note that the study of the interplay of these parameters allows us to program the smart dust network characteristics accordingly.

  • Channel-Specific Wireless Sensor Network Path Data

    Channel-specific path data for a 44-node 2.4 GHz wireless sensor network deployed in an industrial setting is presented. Each node generates one data packet every 28 seconds with the number of transmissions, received acknowledgements, average RSSI, and other metrics for a path to a single neighbor on a single channel for every 15 minutes of operation. Twenty-six days of data were recorded, revealing the scale of time-variation of stability throughout the network and how this is a frequency-dependent quantity. Particularly on low-power paths, both RSSI and stability are observed to vary in unpredictable ways that differ from other paths in the same spatial vicinity. A time-varying model is proposed for simulation of networks in low- noise environments. Channel hopping and path diversity succeed in maintaining near-perfect reliability at a delivered rate of 1.0 kb/s despite this time-and frequency-variance.

  • Technical Overview of SmartMesh IP

    Smart Mesh IP is the latest protocol stack from the Linear Technology's Dust Networks group, who specialize in standards-based intelligent wireless sensor networking solutions. This paper presents a technical overview of this protocol stack, the System-on-Chip built around it, and the "ecosystem" to integrate a low-power mesh network in a larger system and the Internet. A descendant of long-standing protocols such as Wireless HART, the new IEEE802.15.4e Time slotted Channel Hopping standard delivers high reliability and ultra-low power. Combined with 6LoWPAN, the Smart Mesh IP protocol stack combines the industrial performance of IEEE802.15.4e with the ease-of-use of IPv6. After presenting the historical context of this technology, this paper discusses the different design choices which had to be made when designing this protocol stack, before covering typical use cases and real-world example deployments.
