The most prominent standard in low-power radio technology is IEEE 802.15.4. It defines both the PHY layer (e.g., the modulation scheme used) and the MAC layer (e.g., in a network, which mote talks when, on which channel). The first revision of the standard was published in 2003, with revisions in 2006 and 2011. Several working
The IEEE802.15.4e standard was published in 2012 as an amendment to the Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol defined by the IEEE802.15.4-2011 standard. The Timeslotted Channel Hopping (TSCH) mode of IEEE802.15.4e is the object of this page. TSCH was designed to “allow IEEE802.15.4 devices to support a wide range of industrial applications”. At its core is
The Internet is composed of many networks, a number of which are typically traversed by a packet on its way from source to destination. Thus, for each type of link layer technology which the network is based on, there needs to be an “IP-over-X” specification that defines how to transport IP packets. In many cases, to map the
The IETF Constrained RESTful Environments (CORE) working group has defined the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) which easily translates to HTTP for integration with the web, while meeting specialized requirements such as: multicast support, very low overhead, and simplicity for constrained environments. CoAP has been designed as a generic protocol for LLNs taking into account the features of
RPL is a distance vector routing protocol (defined in RFC6550). It can operate on top of IEEE802.15.4. The routing layer is responsible for relaying packets across multiple hops separating source and destination nodes. It is divided into a forwarding engine, which uses a routing table to decide which neighbor node is the next hop for
Abstract—terrestrial wireless sensor networks (TWSNs) are subject to extensive research and development. Numerous applications take advantage of low-cost, small-sized, easily configurable and scalable TWSN nodes to monitor, detect, and track various environmental phenomena and events. The recent advancement in electronics and sensor miniaturization and low-power technologies enabled TWSNs to extend their reach to underwater applications.
BMW has added an active assisted technology to a modified 2 Series Coupe. According to reports, the car can slide into a controlled drift to demonstrate how precise the control systems are and how it can handle a critical situation. “It’s like the best test driver you have,” said Dr. Werner Huber, BMW project manager
The D3S group at the University of Trento, Italy, invites applications for a post‐doctoral research position in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). We are seeking a candidate to conduct research in the context of a funded 3‐year project, starting in 2014, aimed at large‐scale monitoring of the environment, and of the wildlife dwelling in it. To this end, the
Recent developments in sensing and actuation technology, along with the miniaturization of computing and communication, have led to the development of commodity robot technology such as hobby drones and robot tool kits. These platforms are bringing sensing and actuation at places where traditional technology does not reach; for example, for aerial pollution monitoring or for
