A directional broadcasting algorithm for routing discovery in ZigBee networks

A directional broadcasting algorithm for routing discovery in ZigBee networks

resources in the ZigBee devices, the location-based con- trolling strategies are difficult to implement. However, the hierarchical ZigBee networks can be seen as cluster- ing ones. If these clusters are organized by nearby principle and not overlapping, they may imply the in- accurate relative location of the devices. Considering the case in Figure 1, we assume the parameter Cm is 5; the network can be seen as consisting of five clusters that take the nodes in depth 1 as the cluster heads. If node A tries to send a packet to node B by Z-AODV, the global shortest path must start in cluster 1 and finish in cluster 4. Moreover, when we treat the network as round, the two radiuses through the nodes A and B divide it into two sectors; the intermediate nodes of the global short- est path are almost certainly in the smaller one (includ- ing the ZC), as the shaded area shown in Figure 1. By limiting the routing request within this region, the over- head in the routing discovery can be reduced.

Surviving Wi-Fi Interference in Low Power ZigBee Networks

Surviving Wi-Fi Interference in Low Power ZigBee Networks

Frequency overlap across wireless networks with differ- ent radio technologies can cause severe interference and re- duce communication reliability. The circumstances are par- ticularly unfavorable for ZigBee networks that share the 2.4 GHz ISM band with WiFi senders capable of 10 to 100 times higher transmission power. Our work first examines the in- terference patterns between ZigBee and WiFi networks at the bit-level granularity. Under certain conditions, ZigBee activities can trigger a nearby WiFi transmitter to back off, in which case the header is often the only part of the Zig- Bee packet being corrupted. We call this the symmetric in- terference regions, in comparison to the asymmetric regions where the ZigBee signal is too weak to be detected by WiFi senders, but WiFi activity can uniformly corrupt any bit in a ZigBee packet. With these observations, we design BuzzBuzz to mitigate WiFi interference through header and payload re- dundancy. Multi-Headers provides header redundancy giv- ing ZigBee nodes multiple opportunities to detect incom- ing packets. Then, TinyRS, a full-featured Reed Solomon library for resource-constrained devices, helps decoding pol- luted packet payload. On a medium-sized testbed, BuzzBuzz improves the ZigBee network delivery rate by 70%. Further- more, BuzzBuzz reduces ZigBee retransmissions by a factor of three, which increases the WiFi throughput by 10%.

Image Transmission over IEEE and ZigBee Networks

Image Transmission over IEEE and ZigBee Networks

An image sensor network platform is developed for testing transmission of images over ZigBee networks that support multi-hopping. The ZigBee is a low rate and low power networking tech- nology for short range communications, and it currently uses IEEE 802.15.4 MAC and PHY layers. Both ZigBee networking (NWK) and IEEE 802.15.4 MAC layer protocols are imple- mented on a single M16C microprocessor. Transport layer functionalities such as fragmentation and reassembly are performed at the application layer, since the ZigBee NWK does not have a fragmentation support. The multiple access scheme is CSMA/CA, therefore only the best effort multi-hop transmission of JPEG and JPEG-2000 images are tested; Observations and resulting statistics are presented, and open issues are discussed.

Considerations on Security in ZigBee Networks

Considerations on Security in ZigBee Networks

The proposal discussed above introduces some new chal- lenges: the user would have in his own hands a core component of the security architecture. Therefore, he should be capable of managing his home CA and issuing new certificates. Thus, this approach could evidently turn out to be in contrast with the simplicity recommendations provided by ZigBee Specification and ZigBee application profiles about user duties within the network. On the other hand, it is evident the lack of clear specifications about how to organize the Public Key Infrastructure, in order to validate devices certificates. Nevertheless, it is really important to focus on assuring simplicity to the final user while coping with that.

An adaptive routing optimization and energy balancing algorithm in ZigBee hierarchical networks

An adaptive routing optimization and energy balancing algorithm in ZigBee hierarchical networks

So far, although most researches on ZigBee routing have focused on the Z-AODV [9], some progress on routing performance optimization in hierarchical networks has also been made in the field of protocol improvement, beacon slot distribution, hybrid routing algorithm and so on. A modified tree routing mechanism with the introduc- tion of neighbour table is given in [10]. The transmission cost (e.g. hops) via each neighbour device is estimated and compared to improve the routing path. It has a better per- formance with less power consumption per packet trans- fer and a long life cycle. But, this algorithm is based on the two-hop neighbour information; it may lead to severe energy and memory overhead in ZigBee networks. In [11], the reuse pattern of beacon slots in ZigBee hierarchical networks is investigated. It is concluded that beacon slots can be reused judiciously, especially when the risk of beacon collision caused by such reuse is low. On that basis, ZigBee-compatible, distributed and risk-aware prob- abilistic beacon scheduling algorithm is proposed. By the algorithm, one can easily assess the risk of slot reuse to decide whether the reuse is allowed and thus reduce the transmission latency. However, one key parameter in the algorithm is the estimated range of node transmission which may rapidly change in wireless channel. This may degrade the performance and cause collision in beacon slot reuse. In [12], a hybrid routing algorithm without flooding is proposed. The hierarchical topology information is utilized to optimize the routing request broadcasting to reduce the overhead. And, the residential energy of nodes is considered as one routing metric to balance the energy consumption. Nevertheless, the optimized links are based on hierarchical topology, the coverage of routing request; thus, the routing efficiency remains questionable. The au- thors in [13-15] propose several similar routing algorithms for hierarchical topology; the information in neighbour table was used to get shorter paths. However, the links in their methods were still invariable. HRP in ZigBee

Design Of Mobility Robust Tree Construction          Framework For Zigbee Wireless Networks

Design Of Mobility Robust Tree Construction Framework For Zigbee Wireless Networks

information to optimize the locations of routers and construct a mobility robust tree topology in a ZigBee wireless network. The approach deploys routers and constructs a topology with the property that mobile nodes will move along the constructed data-forwarding path with high probability. Data will reach the target mobile nodes as long as they are within the transmission range of any router on the forwarding path. In other words, we choose the positions of the routers and design the tree topology so that most movements are directed toward the root of the tree. To achieve our objective, we gather information about node movements in the environment and construct a ZigBee tree topology framework. In particular, the framework considers the regularity of the mobility patterns during the construction of the tree and deployment of the routing nodes, and it incorporates an overhearing mechanism for mobile nodes to further improve the data delivery ratio. We also design heuristic and low-complexity algorithms for node deployment and tree construction and analyze their performance in ZigBee networks. The effectiveness of network topologies that consider mobility regularity is demonstrated through the ns-2 network simulator.

Hierarchal Grouping Strategy with Adaptive Power Tuning in ZigBee Wireless Sensor Networks

Hierarchal Grouping Strategy with Adaptive Power Tuning in ZigBee Wireless Sensor Networks

D AILLY increasing of monitoring and controlling systems and gathering information from hardly accessible places, have led to design cost-effective devices with processing and communicating abilities and have formed new networks named Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Wireless sensor networks provide bridges between the virtual world of information technology and the real physical world [1]. Due to wide variety of WSN applications from ecological habitat monitoring to Military surveillance and target tracking, the quality of service (QoS) may differ from one to another, but all of them will demonstrate better performance with higher throughput, lower delay and longer lifetime. Achieving high QoS in WSNs is one of the most important keys and challenged due to specific problems and limitations of these networks. Therefore, many protocols and methods have been proposed about the communicating process, accessing to the common media and the energy consumption to improve the QoS metrics. It is obvious that improving some metrics may influence another metrics and decrease system performance. Thus, achieving the best trade-off in the network depends on the applications that are needed by users and the aims of projects. In this paper a new method with acceptable results is proposed for many applications of Zigbee networks [2].

Multiple routing protocols and routing algorithms can be applied in ZigBee networks but in this paper, we have implemented ZigBee using extended AODV protocol in NS2 simulator. The selection of routing protocols and routing strategies depends upon various scenarios specific to a smart home along with the limitation with respect to network throughput and the average network end to end delay. In this paper, different performance metrics (Packet Delivery Ratio and End to End Delay) and the dynamic attributes (Percentage of PDR nodes, Interval of status update message and Wireless Bit Error Rate) have been considered and various observations have been made during the course of simulation. With the proposed implementation, the Bit error rate has improved and reduced end to end delay.

ZigBee-Wireless Mesh Networks for Building Automation and Control

ZigBee-Wireless Mesh Networks for Building Automation and Control

The architecture and floor plan of the building will often dictate how a wireless sensor network is deployed. ZigBee networks can be set up in both star and mesh topologies, but it is expected that the mesh configuration will be used in many commercial buildings to account for the varying floor plans. In such a configuration, it is desired that each node be located within signal range of at least two other nodes to form redundant paths for data routing. If the sensor density is not sufficient, an alternative way to accomplish this node density is to use low-cost repeaters whose only function is to fill in the mesh and provide more connections for the network. The network is self-forming and self-healing and provides the maximum flexibility for route selection.

Multifunctional Robot using ZigBee

Multifunctional Robot using ZigBee

In this project, two ZigBee modules are used. One of them is used as a Transmitter while the other is used as a Receiver. The ZigBee circuit uses 3.3 V DC supply. This low dc voltage can be obtained by feeding the output to the voltage regulator LM7805. This low voltage input is one of the advantages of using ZigBee in autonomous robot because the battery life time will be retained much longer. In these modules, five pins are used for communication which are Tx (RC7), Rx (RC6), 5V, GND and reset [3]. ZigBee operates on 2.4GHz spectrum and it has operating current of around 45-50 mA and RF data rate of 250 kbps.

Evaluation and Assessment of ZigBee wireless Sensor

Evaluation and Assessment of ZigBee wireless Sensor

Though the reference temperature meter had been calibrated, minor error was unavoidable. Reference temperature meter and five ZigBee sensors were placed in a row in environmental chamber. They were close to each other, but still there would be some error since they were not at exactly the same spot. When I conducted temperature test, PCB was exposed directly to the environment, without a protection case. Powering voltage might be affected when ambient temperature drops too quickly. Since the environmental chamber does not have a monitoring window, reference meter readings were collected when the operator opened the environmental chamber. During that process, ambient temperature might have underwent minor changes. The reference sensor in this experiment was in Celsius degree, yet the ZigBee sensor was in Fahrenheit degree. Errors were generated during unit converting. Usually before humidity validation, sensors should be pre-dry in oven for three days. In my experiment we only pre-dry for one day. This can also cause inaccurate reading.

Security Enhancement for ZigBee and Bluetooth

Security Enhancement for ZigBee and Bluetooth

The proposed protocols utilize the public key technology to provide highly secure key establishment for master keys and do not need the involvement of a third trusted party for key distribution. In order to overcome the barrier that public key technology usually requires communication devices equipped with high computational power, the new works take advantage of the unbalanced distribution of computation complexity of unbalanced RSA which make them suitable for the common scenarios in ZigBee and Bluetooth networks where one of the two communication parties (device) has relatively weaker computational capacity.
