We have witnessed the Fixed Internet emerging with virtually every computer being connected today; we are currently witnessing the emergence of the Mobile Internet with the exponential explosion of smart phones, tablets and net-books. However, both will be dwarfed by the anticipated emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), in which everyday objects are(More)
The OpenWSN project is an open-source implementation of a fully standards-based protocol stack for capillary networks, rooted in the new IEEE802.15.4e Time Synchronized Channel Hopping standard. IEEE802.15.4e, coupled with Internet-of-Things standards, such as 6LoWPAN, RPL and CoAP, enables ultra-low power and highly reliable mesh networks which are fully(More)
Industrial low-power wireless mesh networks are shifting towards time-synchronized medium access control (MAC) protocols which are able to yield over 99.9% end-to-end reliability and radio duty cycles well below 1%. In these networks, motes use time slots to communicate, and neighbor motes maintain their clocks' alignment, typically within 1 ms.(More)
This document presents a new work called 6TSCH that is starting at the IETF to enable a large IPv6 multi-link subnet with industrial-grade performances of jitter, latency and reliability. The subnet is composed of a high speed powered backbone and a number of IEEE802.15.4e TSCH wireless mesh networks attached and synchronized by specialized Backbone(More)
The quick proliferation of LPWAN networks, being Lo-RaWAN one of the most adopted, raised the interest of the industry, network operators and facilitated the development of novel services based on large scale and simple network structures. LoRaWAN brings the desired ubiquitous connectivity to enable most of the outdoor IoT applications and its growth and(More)
Recent standardization efforts on low-power wireless communication technologies, including time-slotted channel hopping (TSCH) and DASH7 Alliance Mode (D7AM), are starting to change industrial sensing applications, enabling networks to scale up to thousands of nodes whilst achieving high reliability. Past technologies, such as ZigBee, rooted in IEEE(More)
Time Synchronized Channel Hopping (TSCH) is a technique known to efficiently combat external interference and multi-path fading. TSCH is at the heart of industrial low-power wireless standards such as WirelessHART and IEEE802.15.4e, and the focus of the current standardization activities at IETF 6TiSCH. In a TSCH network, communicating nodes send successive(More)
In this paper we present SR-1, a simulation-based heuristic algorithm for the Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem (CVRP). Given a CVRP instance, SR-1 uses an initial "good solution", such as the one provided by the classical Clarke and Wright heuristic, in order to obtain observations for the variable "distance between two consecutive nodes in a route".(More)
