QoS-AB Project Report
Research Report Highlight
Researchers at Eindhoven report on the analysis and impact of using adequate computing on the application-level Quality-of-Service under the IEEE 802.15.4 standard.
A variety of self-sustaining systems based on intelligent sensor nodes is emerging in different application domains. Smart sensor devices connect to each other and are accessible from anywhere, forming an Internet-of-Things (IoT). The design of robust and energy efficient intelligent sensors is critical for IoT applications. Wireless sensor nodes designed for IoT applications (e.g., NXP JN517x) were previously released. QoS-AB project targets to reduce the power consumption of the wireless sensor networks, because it would enable new potential application possibilities in this field. For this purpose the quality of service - adequate computing is introduced into the baseband processor of the wireless sensor node. Furthermore the design of the baseband processor is performed on several levels of abstraction with bidirectional information exchange between levels.
