Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Node failure detection and data retrieval in wireless sensor networks
by Kotari, Ravi Teja, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 33; 10108190
Abstract (Summary)

This project presents a method for detecting node failure in a wireless sensor network. The defective node is identified using round-trip delay measurements. Data transfer from the transmitter section to the receiver section is accomplished via the ZigBee protocol. As soon as a node has been identified as defective, the node is removed from the sensor network. Information about the failed node is provided to users with registered mobile device through the Global System for Mobile (GSM) module. The proposed method has been successfully implemented and tested experimentally on a small sensor network using the LPC2148 ARM7 microcontroller.
