Performance of a tree routing topology for wireless sensor networks using different platforms
Research Areas
  • Electronic technology and of the communications
A performance evaluation of the Collection Tree Protocol (CTP) topology of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) using different platforms is presented. Three different WSNs composed of Cricket, Mica2 and Iris motes, respectively, were tested at the historical building ?Leonardo Torres Quevedo?. This deployment is representative of a typical building interior with numerous walls and no direct line of sight between the WSN elements. Cricket and Mica2 platforms have the same microcontroller (ATMega128L) and radio chip (Chipcon CC1000) but using different frequencies, 433 MHz and 900 MHz, respectively. Iris motes utilize the Atmega1281 microcontroller and the Atmel RF230 radio transceiver with a frequency of 2.4 GHz. A methodology to evaluate which platform using the CTP protocol is more appropriate for this particular scenario has been used. This methodology is mainly based on the analysis of two parameters, the percentage of received messages and the lifetime of the wireless sensor network. To analyze in more detail which platform gave the best performance, other communication parameters were measured, such as the number of hops required for every message to reach the base station and the father identifier for each message.
