Abstract [en]

Wireless sensor network technologies have gained significant popularity in home automation due to their scalability, system mobility, wireless connectivity, inexpensive and easy commissioning. Thread, a new wireless protocol aiming for home automation, is proposed by Google Nest and standardized by Thread Group.

This thesis presents a thorough experimental evaluation of Thread wireless protocol with the hardware platform from NXP. The test plan, implementation, and analysis of the experiments is discussed in details, including signal coverage, unicast and multicast latency, reliability, and availability. Furthermore, a system level model considering the delay in different layers for the latency of Thread mesh network is presented, and validated by the experimental results. Finally, a friendly tool was developed for installers to estimate the latency of Thread mesh network.
