Abstract:
Industrial wireless sensor networks can facilitate the deployment of a wide range of novel industrial applications, including mobile applications that connect mobile robots, vehicles, goods and workers to industrial networks. Current industrial wireless sensor standards have been mainly designed for static deployments, and their performance significantly degrades when introducing mobile devices. One of the major reasons for such degradation is the neighbor discovery process. This paper presents and evaluates two novel neighbor discovery protocols that improve the capability of mobile devices to remain connected to the industrial wireless sensor networks as they move. The proposed protocols exploit topology information and the nature of devices (static or mobile) to reliably and rapidly discover neighbor devices. This is achieved in some cases at the expense of increasing the number of radio resources utilized and the energy consumed in the discovery process. The proposed solutions have been designed and evaluated considering the WirelessHART standard given its widespread industrial adoption. However, they can also be adapted for the ISA100.11a and IEEE 802.15.4e standards.
