SAMPL: a simple aggregation and message passing layer for sensor networks
In recent years, wireless sensor networking has shown great promise in applications ranging from industrial control, environmental monitoring and inventory tracking. Given the resource-constrained nature of sensor devices and the dynamic wireless channel used for communication, a sensor networking protocol needs to be compact, energy efficient and highly adaptable. In this paper we present SAMPL, a simple aggregation and message passing layer, aimed at flexible aggregation of sensor information over a long period of time, and supporting sporadic messages from mobile devices. SAMPL is a compact network layer that operates on top of a low-power CSMA/CA based MAC protocol. The protocol has been designed with extensibility in mind to support new transducer devices and unforeseen applications without requiring reprogramming of the entire network. SAMPL uses a highly adaptive tree-based routing scheme to achieve highly robust operation in a time-varying environment. The protocol supports pe...
