OCTAGON deals with the important problem of testing and validating energy-efficient means for the accomplishment of complex tasks over a WSN. It tries to minimize the overall energy required for the accomplishment of complex tasks in WSNs while maintaining acceptable performance levels.
Energy efficiency is an aspect of top priority for the most of the Wireless Networks that are met in everyday- life. Continuous and smooth operation of nodes is a minimal requirement for pragmatic network infrastructures and WSN in order to cover the needs of pragmatic network-powered applications. Following the in-network processing paradigm, parts of the application business logic are executed within the network by delegating tasks to the network nodes. However, existing WSNs are mostly based on resource constrained devices with certain limitations in terms of available energy, data processing mechanisms and sensing. In order to maximize the capability of the networks to support in-network mechanisms efficiently, algorithmic solutions that minimize the total energy spent are needed.
In OCTAGON, we are dealing with the important problem of testing and validating energy-efficient means for the accomplishment of complex tasks over a WSN. We try to minimize the overall energy required for the accomplishment of complex tasks in WSNs while maintaining acceptable performance levels. Based on a previous work that we have performed using simulations and taking advantage of ORCA SDR capabilities, we will develop energy-efficient models for task execution over a network. We formulate the assignment of tasks as an optimization problem and we will adapt optimal and near-optimal solutions to work over the ORGA environment. Our results will be validated over the w.iLab.t testbed at IMEC premises.
A kick-off telco between intellia and imec took place. The scope of OCTAGON experiment was analysed. A timeplan has been agreed and the next steps of the experiment have eben defined.
We are familiarizing with the platform, get knowledge of how the tools work (jFed), study the ORCA nodes and make the first reservations and tests.
