Prototyping and Performance Analysis of a QoA MAC Layer for Industrial Wireless Network
Today's industrial sensor networks require strong reliability and guarantees on messages delivery. These needs are even more important in real time applications like control/command, such as robotic wireless communications where strong temporal constraints are critical. For these reasons, classical random-based Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols present a non-null frame collision probability. In this paper, the authors present an original full deterministic MAC-layer for industrial wireless network and its performance evaluation thanks to the development of a material prototype.
