Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Performance and Durability of Future Wireless Sensor Networks

Acronym: PADU
Main Objective:
Important research questions: how should WSNs be integrated into the Future Internet and what special challenges do they present to designers and implementers, taking into account that all aspects of the design of WSN architecture, communication protocols, and mechanisms must be considered under the viewpoint of the limited energy resources available to sensor nodes.

Moreover, to be able to compare different proposed solutions with respect to the requirements of users and operators, a thorough evaluation of the WSNs performance is needed. Hence, the development of unified methods for the evaluation of WSNs is a very important task that is not addressed sufficiently, yet.
