After a decade of research in the field of wireless sensor networks the energy consumption remains the dominating constraint. Complex algorithms with non-negligible runtimes must be processed by resource-limited nodes, and therefore require in-depth knowledge of the temporal behavior of the software and hardware components. However, state-of-the-art(More)
In this paper, we present a methodology to establish an accurate and power-aware simulation of wireless sensor networks. As the design of software applications running on resource-constrained sensor nodes mainly influences both timing and power consumption in the network, it is crucial to include these components in the simulation. Besides considering the(More)
In a wireless sensor network, the energy consumption of the nodes continues to impose a tight constraint. Researchers have therefore proposed several MAC protocols to decrease the energy consumption of the radio transceiver, which has increased the complexity of the firmware running on the nodes. In this paper, we show the consequences of ignoring runtimes(More)
—After a decade of research in the field of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) there are still open issues. WSNs impose several severe requirements regarding energy consumption , processing capabilities, mobility, and robustness of wireless transmissions. Simulation has shown to be the most cost-efficient approach for evaluation of WSNs, thus a number of(More)
