Abstract [en]

There is an increasing demand for reliable wireless communication in embedded real time systems.  Various communication requirements make the development and deployment of applications that rely on the existence of a protocol stack a challenging research and industrial field of activity. Suitable protocol stacks need to be designed and implemented on new hardware platforms and software structures. Applications that exchange packets over a wireless medium have to deal with time constraints, error checks and have to be aware of energy consumption.


PIE (Platform for Intelligent Embedded Systems) is an experimental platform developed at Halmstad University for educational purposes.  It is a robotic vehicle with wireless communication capabilities that can be used to experiment with traffic scenarios where the vehicles communicate in order to cooperate, for example to avoid hazards or to build platoons.


This thesis addresses the design and implementation of a protocol stack suitable for the PIE platform in the area of vehicle alert systems. Requirements include low latencies along with low packet loss ratios.  The thesis addresses also experimenting with reactive objects for programming network software.
