End-to-end Delay Analysis and Measurements in Wireless Sensor Networks
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Wireless sensor networks have arrived because of further developments of themodern Internet, and this has been considered to be one of the most importanttechnologies of the 21st century. Currently, the wireless sensor network has becomean important technology in a variety of areas and is widely used in thefield of national defense, national security, environmental monitoring, trafficmanagement, anti-terrorism, anti-disaster, and so on. The majority of these applicationsrequire real-time communication as the WSNs are required to sendthe data to the data center within a specified time. In order to meet the real-timedemand for wireless sensor networks, this work mainly focuses on the analysisand measurement of the end-to-end delay, including both single-hop and multihopdelays. This thesis first analyzes the composition of the end-to-end delayand then describes the end-to-end delay measurement algorithms and methods.The measurement is implemented in TelosB motes within TinyOS. Finally thereport will show the evaluation of the end-to-end delay in wireless sensor networks.
