— Wireless sensor networks are adapted to monitoring applications. Specific solutions have to be developed for industrial environments in order to deal with the harsh radio conditions and the QoS (quality of service) requirements of industrial applications. In this paper, we present the main protocols used in the OCARI project, and we describe their use of(More)
In wireless sensor networks, energy efficiency is mainly achieved by making nodes sleep. In this paper, we present the combination of SERENA, a new node activity scheduling algorithm based on node coloring, with TDMA/CA, a collision avoidance MAC protocol. We show that the combination of these two protocols enables substantial bandwidth and energy benefits(More)
Sensor nodes are characterized by a small size, a low cost, an advanced communication technology, but also a limited amount of energy. Energy efficient strategies are required in such networks to maximize network lifetime. In this paper, we focus on a solution integrating energy efficient routing and node activity scheduling. The energy efficient routing we(More)
