Scheduling for Source Relaying with Packet Aggregation in Industrial Wireless Networks (2016)
The interest in wireless communication systems for industrial applications has grown significantly over the last years. More flexible, easier to install and maintain wireless networks present a promising alternative to the currently used wired systems. However, reliability and timeliness requirements at present met by wired networks need also be fulfilled by wireless solutions. Packet errors introduced when packets travel through wireless channels imply a significant challenge to fulfill these requirements. Relaying has been recognised to improve reliability in industrial wireless networks without causing additional delay. Further, recent results have shown that relaying combined with packet aggregation significantly outperforms simple relaying. However, it is not always costefficient to introduce additional relay nodes into an industrial network and hence, in this paper, we propose to use a combination of relaying and packet aggregation at the source nodes. The results show that when relaying and aggregation are used at the source nodes, the transmission schedule plays a crucial role. A schedule adapting to the varying channel conditions improves the performance substantially. By carefully choosing which packet to aggregate, even further improvements can be achieved.

Retransmission Strategies for Cyclic Polling over Wireless Channels in the Presence of Interference Gamba, G.; Tramarin, F.; Willig, A. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2010)In this paper we consider retransmission strategies for centralized cyclic polling-based systems over wireless channels subject to external interference. The considered strategies differ in the time when retransmissions ...
Mutual Interference in Large Populations of Co-Located IEEE 802.15.4 Body Sensor Networks - A Sensitivity Analysis Moravejosharieh, A.; Willig, A. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2016)We consider scenarios where a large number of wireless body sensor networks (WBSN) meets at the same location, as can happen for example at sports events, and assess the impact of their mutual interference on their ...
Relayer-Enabled Retransmission Scheduling in 802.15.4e LLDN -- Exploring a Reinforcement Learning Approach Willig A; Matusovsky Y; Kind A (2017)We consider the scheduling of retransmissions in the low-latency deterministic network (LLDN) extension to the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. We propose a number of retransmission schemes with varying degrees of required changes ...
