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...
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...
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...
Diversity Analysis of Hierarchical Modulation in Cooperative Communication
Yalcin, Ahmet Zahid; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2014-01-01)
In cooperative communication systems, hierarchical modulation is used to increase systems robustness and to send different information flows simultaneously. In cooperative communication systems which use hierarchical modulation, error propagation is the most important problem that prevents achieving full diversity gain. Thresholds that depend on the signal to noise ratio (SNR) value between the source and the relay can be used to mitigate error propagation. If the instantaneous SNR between the source and th...
Diversity Analysis of Hierarchical Modulation in Wireless Relay Networks
Yalcyn, Ahmet Zahid; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2014-07-01)
In communication systems, hierarchical modulation is used to increase system robustness and to send different information flows simultaneously. However, when used in cooperative communication systems, hierarchical modulation is prone to error propagation, which is the most important problem that prevents the achievement of full diversity gains. Depending on the signal-to-noise ratio between the source and the relay, threshold digital relaying can be used to mitigate error propagation. Mitigating error propa...
