A real world RF characterisation tool set for wireless sensor networks

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Whilst conducting some preliminary research for an industrially-based Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) project within the rail industry, it became apparent that
a method to obtain real world Radio Frequency (RF) performance characteristics without requiring expensive test hardware did not exist. It was also apparent that
informative data on the real world characterisation of environments where WSN nodes are likely to be deployed was a neglected area of research. A design has been completed that addresses these issues. A cross platform set of tools will be able to collect a dataset from a number of test sites using standard WSN nodes. The project is now moving into the implementation and testing phase which will be completed by late August 2005.
