ROBUST COMMUNICATION FOR LOCATION-AWARE MOBILE ROBOTS USING MOTES

ABSTRACT

This project presents a robust wireless communication solution for mobile robots using motes. Motes, sometimes referred to as smart dust, are small, low-cost, low-power computing devices equipped with wireless communication capability that uses Radio Frequency (RF). Motes have been applied widely in wireless sensing networks and are typically connected to sensors and used to gather information about their environment. Communication in a mote network is inherently unreliable due to message loss, exposed to attacks, and supports very low bandwidth. Additional mechanisms are therefore required in order to achieve robust communication.

This thesis describes the working of demo software configuration for a team of mobile robots that use motes for robust wireless communication. The thesis also presents demo results of experiments performed.
