Pervasive Wireless Device Network Applications Basic Requirement: Provide the low rate, wireless interconnection of ultra low cost sensor/actuator/processing devices to enable the cyber-world to sense and affect the real physical environment. • Applications: • Environmental and Health Monitoring • Home Entertainment and Toys • Security, Location and Asset Tracking • Emergency and Disaster Response
Cornerstones • Energy Efficiency: Battery Life Prioritized Above Data Capacity. • Capable of Data Throughput < 1kb/day. • Scalable from Home Environment to Large Industrial Control and Monitoring Applications. • Non-IP Addressing/Routing with IP Gateway. • Inherent Node Location Awareness. • Self Organizing/Configuring (rapid deployment). • Fixed or Low Mobility Devices. • Not Designed for Isochronous Data. • Tolerant of Transient High Volume Data.
Applications & Requirements • Industrial and Environmental Control and Monitoring • Reliable, distributed sensing and control with emphasis on energy efficiency – a sensor network with long latency tolerance (long life span) • Rapid Deployment with emphasis on self-organization, scalability and distributed management; coping with disaster prevention, control, big events and exploration of unknown territory (short life span) • Low Rate Consumer and SOHO Network • Low rate control and entertainment devices – a smaller network with low latency tolerance that remains energy efficient
