Authors: Mr. Daniele De Caneva, Dr. Davide Pierattoni, Dr. Pier Luca Montessoro
Abstract:
Recent years technology trend has led to the emergence of complete systems on a chip with integrated low power communication and transducer capabilities. This has opened the way for wireless sensor networks: a paradigm of hundreds or even thousands of tiny, smart sensors with transducer and communication capabilities. Manage such a complex network that has to work unattended for months or years, being aware of the limited power resouces of the battery supplied nodes is a challenging task. Attending that task requires an adequate software platform, in other words an operating system specific for wireless sensor networks. In this article will be show a short overview of the much known operating systems, highlightening the key challenges that have driven their design
