This paper presents an empirical study of the effects of the channel occupation on the consumption of actual IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee motes. The study is focused on the current demanded by a sensor node in a simple beaconless star topology when the CSMA contention algorithm introduces idle times in the activity of the radio transceiver. For this purpose, the developed testbed permits to define the probability of failure of the CCA (Clear Channel Assessment) operation, which is executed by the 802… CONTINUE READING
