    A TSCH Schedule for Data Collection from Mobile Nodes


    Elsts, A, Pope, J, Fafoutis, X, Piechocki, R & Oikonomou, G, 2018, ‘Instant: A TSCH Schedule for Data Collection from Mobile Nodes’. in: Proceedings of the 2019 International Conference on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks. Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), pp. 35-46


    Low-power wearable devices are becoming increasingly important for fitness and healthcare applications. However, existing protocols based on the IEEE 802.15.4 low-power wireless standard are not optimized for data collection from mobile devices. This paper presents Instant: a schedule for the IEEE 802.15.4 TSCH protocol tailored for this application. We evaluate the data collection speed, energy consumption, and fairness of Instant, and show that Instant achieves several times higher data collection speed from mobile nodes compared with the state-of-the-art Orchestra schedule.
