Wireless Time-Triggered Communication using a Firefly Clock Synchronization Approach

In South-East Asia, huge swarms of fireflies synchronously emit light flashes to attract mating partners. The underlying principle can be used to implement a robust and scalable distributed synchronization approach in wireless sensor networks. In this work we implement the … Continue reading

The different types of sensor fusion: complementary, competitive, and cooperative

Sensor Fusion is the combining of sensory data or data derived from sensory data such that the resulting information is in some sense better than would be possible when these sources were used individually. (W.¬†Elmenreich. Sensor Fusion in Time-Triggered Systems, … Continue reading

A Time-Triggered Fieldbus Protocol: TTP/A

In a time-triggered protocol, the schedules for all messages are predefined and peridocal. So each node in an ensemble knows a priori when to send or when to expect to receive some message. For an overall communication cluster. Time-triggered systems … Continue reading
