Improvement and development of high-frequency wireless token-ring protocol

Kurtuluş, Taner
STANAG 5066 Edition 2 is a node-to-node protocol developed by NATO in order to communicate via HF media. IP integration is made to be able to spread the use of STANAG 5066 protocol. However, this integration made the communication much slower which is already slow. In order to get faster the speed and communicate within single-frequency multi-node network, HFTRP, which is a derivative of WTRP, is developed. This protocol is in two parts, first is a message design for management tokens exchanged by communicating nodes, and second is the algorithms used to create, maintain, and repair the ring of nodes in the network. Scope of this thesis is to find out a faster ring setup, growing procedure and to implement. Beside, finding optimum values of tuning parameters for HFTRP is also in the scope of this thesis.


INtERCEDE: An algorithmic approach to networked control system design
Senol, Sinan; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Schmidt, Şenan Ece (Elsevier BV, 2011-07-01)
Networked Control Systems (NCS) are distributed control systems where the sensor signals to the controllers and the control data to the actuators are enclosed in messages and sent over a communication network. On the one hand, the design of an NCS requires ensuring the stability of the control system and achieving system response that is as close as possible to that of an ideal system which demands network resources. On the other hand, these resources are limited and have to be allocated efficiently to acco...
How many sensors for an acceptable breach detection probability?
Onur, Ertan; Delic, H (Elsevier BV, 2006-01-10)
Determining the required number of sensors to be deployed is a critical decision for surveillance wireless sensor networks. In this paper, we discuss the trade-off between the number of sensors and the breach detection probability considering the effects of sensor parameters. We present the weakest breach path problem formulation and provide a solution by utilizing the Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm. We propose a method to determine the required number of sensors to be deployed and to gain insight about...
Investigation of energy efficient traffic adaptive mac layer protocols for multi-hop ad-hoc networks
Senem, Murat; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
Multi Hop Ad-Hoc Networks typically refer to interconnected sensing devices with limited processing, communication, and power capabilities. Self-organization, reliability, and energy efficiency are important issues in these networks. Energy efficient, traffic adaptive, multi-channel, and schedule based MAC Layer protocols have been studied for ad-hoc networks in this thesis. Medium sharing problem is one of the most important topic for multi hop ad-hoc networks, especially under intensive data traffic. In r...
Software tool development for the automated configuration of flexray networks for in vehicle communication
Öztürk, Can; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Schmidt, Klaus Werner; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
The increasing use of electronic components in today’s automobiles demands more powerful in-vehicle network communication protocols. FlexRay protocol, which is expected to be the de-facto standard in the near future, is a deterministic, fault tolerant and fast protocol designed for in vehicle communication. For proper operation of a FlexRay network the communication schedule needs to be computed and the nodes need to be configured before startup. Current software tools that are geared towards FlexRay only d...
Message Scheduling for the FlexRay Protocol: The Dynamic Segment
Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009-06-01)
The FlexRay communication protocol is expected to be the de facto standard for high-speed, in-vehicle communication. In this paper, we formally investigate the scheduling problem for the dynamic segment (DS) of FlexRay. We take the bounds on the generation times and the timing requirements of the signals into consideration to propose a reservation-based scheduling approach that preserves the flexible medium access of the DS. To obtain efficient schedules, we formulate a nonlinear integer program- ming probl...
