Workshop: Hands-On Intro to Low-Power Wireless Sensor Networking [BPN592]
This IAB we have prepared a half-day tech-transfer workshop for industrial members
teaching
background, fundamentals, advantages and limitations associated with standards-based low-power
sensor networks. Open standards are important because they allow technologies to gain traction and
industries to blossom. Open-source reference implementations take things one step further. Because
standard protocols invariably allow optional configurations, a reference implementation gives people
a concrete example of how to get started. The proposed IEEE802.15.4e standard prescribes time
synchronization and channel hopping, two features which form a more reliable foundation for upper-
layer network enhancements. In addition, the IETF 6LoWPAN standard specifies how to connect sensor
networks to the Internet, and the proposed RPL standard allows messages to reliably multi-hop their
way through a mesh. In this workshop, attendees will receive a take-home kit of motes based on a
wireless sensor board which we have dubbed the Guidance & Inertial Navigation Assistant (GINA). The
kit includes the GINA mote plus its surrounding eco-system (a set of four boards in total), enabling
Industrial Members to experiment with the new open-source reference implementation of the protocols
with their own sensors and in their own laboratories when they return to their companies after the
workshop.
