SRCP: Simple Remote Control for Perpetual High-Power Sensor Networks
Source: University of Massachusetts
Remote management is essential for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) designed to run perpetually using harvested energy. A natural division of function for managing WSNs is to employ both an in-band data plane to sense, store, process, and forward data, and an out-of-band management plane to remotely control each node and its sensors. This paper presents SRCP, a Simple Remote Control Protocol that forms the core of an out-of-band management plane for WSNs. SRCP is motivated by the target environment: a perpetual deployment of high-power, aggressively duty-cycled nodes capable of handling high-bandwidth sensor data from multiple sensors.
