Implementation of routing protocol in uIPv6-based wireless sensor network

Badrol Hisham, Muhammad Hafizuddin (2010) Implementation of routing protocol in uIPv6-based wireless sensor network. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Electrical Engineering.



Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) become more important in various application areas. WSNs have been widely used in information collection and monitoring applications. These applications require numerous low cost, low power and low data sensor nodes that communicating over multiple hop to cover a large geographical area. Many applications require connectivity between WSNs and the Internet. Though WSN is typically not IP-enabled, connection to the IP network makes it easy to monitor sensors everywhere in the world. Introduction of uIPv6 will solve this issue. The objective of this research is to embed Contiki OS in Atmel RZRAVEN Development Kit and implement routing protocol in uIPv6-based WSNs. Then measure it performance in term of throughput. The routing protocol will takes into account link quality, route cost and the receive signal strength of next hop sensor nodes in making routing decision in the network. Operating System that used in WSNs are Contiki OS and programming code for routing protocol is written using C language. Then, developed code is programmed into Atmel radio sensors boards in WSN test beds. The result of single hop and multihop communication of the testbed is also presented. Atmel RZRAVEN enables development, debugging and demonstration of a wide range of lowpower wireless applications including IEEE 802.15.4, 6LoWPAN and ZigBee networks.
