Demonstration of WISDOM - a Wireless in Field Measurement and Debugging Platform for Wireless Sensor Networks and Devices
Keywords:WISDOM, Wireless, Wireless Sensor Networks and Devices, in Field Measurement and Debugging Platform
Energy consumption is one of the major concerns in battery powered wireless sensor networks (WSN) that should be considered not just at the end of the development process. It depends on several factors at different layers and accompanies nearly the entire product life cycle. Starting from the choice and layout of hardware, up to the decision of software, concepts such as an Operating System (OS) or driver libraries, the application itself, the overall system behaviour, ageing processes as well as environmental conditions. Therefore the power consumption of a single wireless node within the network and even the complete network should be carefully considered, calculated or estimated and simulated. Finally the overall consumption needs to be evaluated under real environmental conditions. The Wireless in Field Measurement and Debugging Platform (WISDOM), presented in, has been created to support the developers during the overall development process and to support him at this type of questions. The demonstrator will give an overview of how to find potential power consumers and assess optimization potential even within complex systems.
