In this project, we exploit MAC layer to propose an adaptive MAC protocol based on time slotted structure and channel hopping for industrial control applications. The protocol targets to meet the traffic requirements of two states of the control system: transient and steady state.
We take into account dynamics of the process control system so that the the protocol is adaptive to varying states of the process controller and satisfy its upstream and downstream traffic flows.
Objectives and evaluation:
-Proposed an adaptive and deterministic MAC protocol.
-Evaluate the protocol through simulation for various performance metrics such reliability, latency, and energy efficiency.
-Evaluate the protocol on the MIoT testbed for the above mentioned performance metrics.
