Abstract

The realisation of energy efficient buildings is a very innovative and chal- lenging field of application for wireless sensor networks. To achieve the goal of minimising the buildings energy consumption and optimising the energy use, the deployment of sensor nodes is crucial. These sensors, in fact, could be used to measure the power consumed by the different appliances. The eDIANA project, funded by FP7 of the European Commission through the ARTEMISIA framework, is focused on this target. In this paper we con- sider a building composed of apartments, where a number of IEEE 802.15.4 standard-compliant sensors are distributed. Performance, in terms of packet error rate, average delays and energy consumption, is evaluated and the im- pact of the interferences is shown. Moreover, different network topologies are studied and compared. The aim of this study is to show the applicability of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard to the eDIANA application scenario and provide some guidelines for designing the network.
