Network protocols for ultra-low power wireless sensor networks

February 20th, 2008
Location Sage 3510 - 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Refreshments at 3:30 p.m.
In this talk I will motivate the need for ultra low power network
protocols in wireless sensor networks through an environmental
monitoring application we have developed. I will then present, Koala,
a reliable data retrieval system designed to operate at permille (.1%)
duty cycles which are essential for long term environmental monitoring
networks. I will also present, Typhoon, an epidemic routing protocol
designed to reliably propagate large objects to the whole
network. Finally, I will argue how techniques developed for these
protocols can be broadly applied in WSNs.
