TOWARDS INCREASING THE REUSABILITY OF THE WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORK PROTOCOLS

Sonia Hashish

Abstract

Increasing the reusability of the wireless sensor network protocols requires decoupling the underlying communication primitives from the upper layer protocols primitives. One way to achieving this goal is unifying the whole software stack architecture. This unifying process would significantly increase the overhead and affect the resulting performance. It is still unknown whether this huge unifying process will provide the required benefits to the protocol designers. Building a generic infrastructure at the level of physical links is a promising step towards increasing the reusability of upper layer protocols. To be described as a generic, the infrastructure should efficiently support different upper layer protocols and different communication configurations. It should also provide logical relationships among nodes without hiding the physical relationships. Moreover, Failures should neither destruct the infrastructure nor hinder the upper layer operations. Building such infrastructure is very challenging and is still an open research problem.
