(Joe Paradiso) Some fields interesting WSN Structure (How WSN is organized?) Sensor node (For example, Mote made by UCB) Mote – node used for low-power, wireless, sensor networks’ terminal. Multi-channels transceiver with extended range. Support TinyOS- special operating system developed for WSN. Support for wireless remote reprogramming. sensor boards and data acquisition add- on boards. WSN Structure (How WSN is organized?) Sensor node Sink / Base Station What is behind it? Why it can work? Task management plane Mobility management plane Application Layer Power management plane Multi-hop Transport Layer wireless Network Layer Data-link Layer Physical Layer WSN Structure (How WSN is organized?) Power management plane: Manage a sensor node how to use its energy. know itself Mobility management plane: Detects and registers the movement of sensor nodes, know its neighbors and balance their power and task usage. know others around Task management plane: Balances and schedules the sensing tasks given to a specific region. know whole sensor nodes in the network WSN Structure (How WSN is organized?) Physical Layer: responsible for frequency selection, modulation and data encryption. Data-link Layer: responsible for multiplexing of data streams, data frame detection, Medium Access control (MAC) and error control. Network Layer: route the data supplied by the Transport layer, special multi-hop wireless routing protocols between sensor nodes and sink nodes. Transport Layer: maintain the flow of data if the Application Layer requires it. Needed if End-User accesses the Sensor Network through the Internet. Application Layer: Makes the hardware and software of the lower layers transparent to the End-User. WSN Structure (What are the specialties of WSN?) WSN’s special characters Person unattended, inaccessible. Limited resource - power, memory, MPU… Topology changes/breaks frequently (war field, etc). High density employed, broadcast communication paradigm (normal ad-hoc networks uses point-to-point communications). WSN’s research characteristics Self-organization. Scientific topology, routing and low power.. Fault tolerance & robustness. Security Must be self-organized, self-maintaining and operate at low duty cycle. Outline Introduction What is WSN?
