In recent years, studies on the energy efficiency in buildings have widely attracted the attention of researchers. In order to reach the optimal management of energy consumption, deployment of sensor de- vices, that can measure the power consumed by appliances, is crucial. The project eDIANA, funded by the EC through the ARTEMIS framework, focuses on this target. According to the eDIANA application scenario, sensors are distributed over cells, that are apartments or working units, and send data to a concentrator, denoted as Cell Device Concentrator (CDC). In this demonstration we have considered a wireless sensor net- work, composed of IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee devices transmitting data to the ZigBee coordinator, located inside the CDC. SPEAr600 and Freescale boards are connected to constitute a prototype CDC. Multi-hop ZigBee networks have been formed and latency measurements conducted in dif- ferent number of hops. The realized prototype provides a basis for the development of the eDIANA platform.

Abstract

In recent years, studies on the energy efficiency in buildings have widely attracted the attention of researchers. In order to reach the optimal management of energy consumption, deployment of sensor de- vices, that can measure the power consumed by appliances, is crucial. The project eDIANA, funded by the EC through the ARTEMIS framework, focuses on this target. According to the eDIANA application scenario, sensors are distributed over cells, that are apartments or working units, and send data to a concentrator, denoted as Cell Device Concentrator (CDC). In this demonstration we have considered a wireless sensor net- work, composed of IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee devices transmitting data to the ZigBee coordinator, located inside the CDC. SPEAr600 and Freescale boards are connected to constitute a prototype CDC. Multi-hop ZigBee networks have been formed and latency measurements conducted in dif- ferent number of hops. The realized prototype provides a basis for the development of the eDIANA platform.
