Adaptive Store and Forward - A look into possible solutions for the increasing resource consumption in wireless sensor networks
MetadataVis full innførsel
Over the recent years the interest for wireless sensor networks and Internet ofThings (IoT) has grown significantly. As a consequence of this, there is a needfor solutions to conserve restricted resources such as energy and network usage.This thesis presents a look into possible solutions to meet the new demands. Acomplete test platform is presented and established. A wireless sensor networkbased on the protocol 6LoWPAN is used as a test bench. In addition a customenergy measurement system is designed, implemented and physically built. Despitesome challenges with the physical assembly, several tests was conducted. The testsdoes indicate that the presented store and forward method could possibly reducethe energy consumption in such systems. This indication was approximately 10% in potential energy savings over a duration of 100 Seconds for a single node. A list of tasks for further work is also presented together with possible improvements.
