Abstract [en]

High reliability and real-time performance are main research challenges in Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks (IWSNs). Existing routing protocols applied in IWSNs are either overcomplicated or fail to fulfill the stringent requirements. In this paper, we propose a reliable and flexible Received Signal Strength-based routing scheme. Our proposed solution can achieve a seamless transition in the event of topology change and can be applied in different industrial environments. The simulation results show that our solution outperforms conventional routing protocols in both reliability and latency. Furthermore, the result also proves that the changes of the network topology have no impact on data transmissions of other nodes by our scheme, whereas conventional routing protocols are shown to fail to recover the network in a short time. Finally, due to dynamic weighting mechanism, the proposed scheme is verified to achieve significantly higher reliability in scenarios with obstacles and avoid installation troubles, compared to location-based flooding scheme. Thus, our proposed scheme is considered to be more suitable for IWSNs than other routing protocols.

Abstract [en]

In the industrial automation, Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks (IWSNs) have been increasingly applied due to a great number of benefits such as convenient installation, flexible deployment and cost efficiency. Compared with conventional wireless systems, IWSNs have more stringent requirements communication reliability and real time performance. However, IWSNs are frequently deployed in a hash industrial environment with electromagnetic disturbances, moving objects and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) communication. Because of the vulnerability of wireless signal, IWSNs are under high risk oftransmission failures, which may result in missing or delaying of process orcontrol data. For industrial automation, missing the process or control deadlineis intolerable, which may terminate industrial application and finally result in economic loss and safety problems. From hierarchy point of view, the high communication reliability and low communication latency can be achieved from different network layers. OnMAC layer, existing protocols in IWSNs only provide automatic repeat request (ARQ) to improve reliability at the cost of real time performance. Analternative method is to apply Forward Error Correction (FEC) mechanism on MAC layer to provide more reliable transmissions and reduce acknowledgement messages by recovering error data. On network layer, routing protocolplays an important role in both communication reliability and latency. Traditionalrouting protocols in IWSNs are either hardly able to fulfill both of these requirements or overcomplicated.In this thesis, we initially explore the possibilities of introducing FEC intoIWSN under the requirements of the existing standard on MAC layer. Then we propose compatible and flexible FEC schemes on MAC layer for IWSNs without violating the standard format. Routing protocols based on flooding are proved to increase the Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR) by transmission diversity.We propose reliable and robust routing protocols with respect to high reliability and real time performance for IWSNs.
