March 2009 - December 2012
As part of our effort in Pervasive Computing research, we've started to work with Firelies RTLS, a French startup specialized in advanced geolocation services. They aim at providing long-term and resilient location service for high value assets using active RFID tags.
In 2011, the project has been refocused towards energy-constraints addressing, routing and management. This explains the joint-work with the TRIO team, and the arrival and Pr. Nanda from the University of Sydney. We are in the process of conducting a thorough evaluation of the Fireflies framework against standards and state of the art solutions in those areas. We are both building a local testbed and an extended simulation environment with a set of usage scenarii that are to be fed by real experiments. We are also working in improving the depth (number of hops) and the overall life-span of the sensor network in line with their application needs.
