Jan-Hinrich Hauer, Roberta Daidone, Ricardo Severino, Jasper Büsch, Marco Tiloca and Stefano Tennina, "An Open-Source IEEE 802.15.4 MAC Implementation for TinyOS 2.1," Proceedings of 8th European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN 2011), Poster Session, Bonn, Germany, February 2011.


The IEEE 802.15.4 standard has been attracting strong interest, but in the academic community so far very little research related to the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC has been evaluated experimentally, with real hardware under realistic conditions. This is mainly due to the fact that a stable, open-source IEEE 802.15.4 MAC implementation has been unavailable for a long time. Vendor-specific implementations are often proprietary, cover the standard only partially or are customized to a specific platform. Our work aims at closing this gap: we present our open-source, platform-independent IEEE 802.15.4-2006 MAC implementation, which has been published as a part of the 2.1 release of the TinyOS operating system.
