Low-cost Device Implementation of a Topology Independent MAC (TiMAC) Policy (bibtex)
by Asterios Papamichail, Vasileios Dragonas, George Koufoudakis, Konstantinos Oikonomou, Georgios Tsoumanis, Ioannis Stavrakakis
Abstract:
The emerging new paradigm under the upcoming 5G communication paradigm is expected to support the multitudes of low-cost devices and an all-increasing number of new applications. Considering time-constrained applications (e.g., safety applications in vehicular networks) TDMA-based medium access control (MAC) policies, like those independent of the underlying topology (e.g., TiMAC) need to be revisited and now implemented in already existing low-cost devices. For these purposes, here TiMAC is considered and it is implemented in low-cost devices using 433 MHz RF modules. Even though at this stage the implementation is limited by synchronization issues and a small number of nodes, the obtained experimental results demonstrate the potential for employing TDMA-based MAC policies for safety applications in low-cost devices.
