Implementation and evaluation of a synchronous time-slotted medium access protocol for networked industrial embedded systems

2011
Gözcü, Ahmet Korhan
Dynamic Distributed Dependable Real-time Industrial communication Protocol family (D3RIP), has been proposed in the literature considering the periodic or event-based traffic characteristics of the industrial communication networks. D3RIP framework consists of two protocol families: Interface Layer (IL) protocol family, which is responsible for providing the accurate time-division multiple access (TDMA) on top of a shared-medium broadcast channel, and Coordination Layer (CL), which is defined to fulfill the external requirements of IL. In this thesis, the hardware adaptations of the two protocols, Real-time Access Interface Layer (RAIL) and Time-slotted Interface Layer (TSIL), of the IL protocol family, are implemented. Their performance on both personal computers (PC) and development kits (DK) are observed.

Dynamic Distributed Dependable Real Time Ethernet Industrial Protocol (D3RIP) is a real time industrial communication protocol that runs over shared-medium Ethernet with COTS hardware. The protocol consists of an interface layer that enables time slotted communication and a coordination layer that guarantees collision avoidance and timely delivery of real time messages generated by the control application. At the current development stage, these two layers of the protocol are fully implemented and tested. T...
Energy efficient wireless unicast routing alternatives for machine-to-machine networks
Tekbiyik, Neyre; Uysal, Elif (Elsevier BV, 2011-09-01)
Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications is a new and rapidly developing technology for large-scale networking of devices without dependence on human interaction. Energy efficiency is one of the important design objectives for machine-to-machine network architectures that often contain multihop wireless subnetworks. Constructing energy-efficient routes for sending data through such networks is important not only for the longevity of the nodes which typically depend on battery energy, but also for achieving a...
Evaluation of priority dependent and time scheduled MAC layer protocols for ad-hoc networks
Erdeğer, İsmail; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
Ad-hoc networks have very unique features, such as dynamic topologies, relatively limited bandwidth and wireless signal propagation schemes, which present various challenges for wireless communication. In this thesis, control mechanisms for channel access scheduling and topology in ad-hoc networks are evaluated, which utilize the information from two-hop neighborhood to cope with the communication difficulties in ad-hoc networks. Channel assignment is one of the most important topics for ad-hoc networks. Ch...
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...
Implementation and evaluation of the dynamic distributed real time industrial protocol (D²RIP)
Kaya, Adem; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
The contemporary large-scale and complex industrial control systems such as manufacturing systems, power plants or chemical processes are realized as distributed systems. Since different controller nodes are usually physically distributed, their coordination and information exchange is commonly realized via industrial communication networks (ICNs). In the last decade, there is an ongoing research effort in both academic and industrial fields to employ Ethernet for industrial communications due to its wide a...
