A software radio-empowered sensor network

Li, Yafei and He, Zhitao and Voigt, Thiemo and Leidelöf, Sanna (2009) A software radio-empowered sensor network. In: 9th Scandinavian Workshop on Wireless Adhoc Networks (Adhoc'09), 4-5 May 2009, Uppsala, Sweden.



Low power wireless sensors are limited by current radio technologies to short communication range and low throughput. We envision that future radios with advanced software programmable encoding and modulation will bring sensor networks unprecedented flexibility and performance. We have taken a step towards realizing this vision by designing a softwarebased, narrow-band transceiver using the GNU Radio software and the Universal Software Radio Peripheral hardware. We have verified the compatibility of our implementation with existing wireless sensor platforms. We demonstrate the flexibility of our design with sensing applications running on a sensor network communicating over hybrid radios.
