Recommended by Mischa Dohler This paper deals with a novel MAC layer protocol, namely, directive synchronous transmission asynchronous reception (D-STAR) able to space-time synchronize a wireless sensor network (WSN). To this end, D-STAR integrates directional antennas within the communications framework, while taking into account both sleep/active states,(More)
The adoption of wireless sensor networks (WSN) for wide area environmental monitoring is currently considered one of the most challenging application scenario for this emerging technology. The promise of an unmanaged, self-configuring and self-powered wireless infrastructure, with a continuously decreasing cost per unit, attracts the attention of both final(More)
— This paper deal with a novel MAC layer protocol, namely Directive Synchronous Transmission Asynchronous Reception (D-STAR) able to logically synchronize a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) by managing both sleep/active states together with integrating directional antennas within the communications framework, according to a cross-layer design. D-STAR protocol(More)
The Internet of Things vision introduces the capability of connecting smart sensor/actuators to locally available networks in order to allow the interaction with the real world. The two visions are, thus, perfectly integrated and ideally suited to perform the task of collecting simple information from the surrounding environment. Using smart distributed(More)
