TinyOS Technology Exchange2 Feb. 11, 2005 XMesh Features TrueMesh self-organizing, self-healing Low Power Listening Upstream and Downstream Time Synchronization Quality of Service (QoS) Link-level acks End-to-end acks Health Diagnostics Streaming service Bulk transfer along dedicated path Extended Low Power End node / Send only Doesnt route Hybrid star mesh ZigBee Support Interoperability with popular standards
TinyOS Technology Exchange3 Feb. 11, 2005 Flaws with Star Topology Coverage Without mesh, irregular RF patterns create holes in coverage map AKA: Router Nodes, Coordinator Nodes, End points Start with 11 routers Add 8 more Still 3 nodes not in coverage area
TinyOS Technology Exchange4 Feb. 11, 2005 TrueMesh Coverage Area With mesh, irregular RF patterns are beneficial and exploited Start with 3 As you add nodes they build their own coverage area.
TinyOS Technology Exchange6 Feb. 11, 2005 Low Power Listening Long Preamble: 140 ms Algorithm: Wake up 8 times per second Sniff radio channel If preamble, receive data If clear, send if needed time 125 ms Fast Channel check: 140 µsec Receiver Sender preamble data
TinyOS Technology Exchange7 Feb. 11, 2005 Low Power with Time Synchronization Algorithm: Sender still sends preamble: Receiver wakes up right before end of interval time 125 ms Receiver Sender preamble data Long 140 ms Allows arbitrary new nodes to join mesh network Short 25 ms Optimizes power when sending to nodes already in mesh Standard 2 ms Optimizes communication speed for nodes talking to base data
TinyOS Technology Exchange8 Feb. 11, 2005 Power Savings w/ Time Synchronization Testbed: 20 MICA2 Majority of the nodes 2 hops from the base station Estimated battery lifetime minute reporting intervals Battery life depends on type of sensor(s) attached to node.
TinyOS Technology Exchange9 Feb. 11, 2005 Streaming Light path to one node: Bi-directional from leaf to base Send message to special AM type Nodes along path go into Full Power mode for a set time Allows for Bulk Transfer PC
