Routing algorithm dedicated to environmental data collection: Precision Agriculture

Algorithme de routage dédié à l'acquisition de données environnementales : cas de l'agriculture de précision


The wireless sensor network (WSN) is one of the most important technologies of the 21st century. Most researchers and technical analysts believe that in the near future, these micro-sensors will be integrated throughout anywhere of our life. In recent years, the IoT (Internet of Things) and WoT (Web of Things) technologies also have great forwarding. Especially, the IPv6 over Low power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPAN) protocol has allowed the use of IPv6 protocol stack in the field of WSN, thanks to its encapsulation and compression mechanisms in IPv6 packet header. Moreover, the RPL (IPv6 routing protocol for low-power and lossy network) provides such a powerful routing function that can be applied for a variety of application scenario. These two key standards of IoT and WoT technologies for WSN can be used in an IPv6 stack, and they will successfully achieve the connection between Internet and micro-sensors. Thus, due to the availability of IPv6 address (128-bit), all the communicating objects, such as smart device, sensor, actuator and etc., can be connected to the Internet. That is the greatest advantage brought by the IoT. Although the advancement of these techniques is extremely fast, several issues caused by resource constraints of micro-sensor (limited processing power, bandwidth and lossy connection link, and energy), such as QoS, energy efficient, robustness and lifetime of WSN, and the most important, the special requirement brought by agricultural applications, are still very challenging and waiting to be solved.
