OpenWSN (Software)

Participants : Tengfei Chang, Jonathan Muñoz, Malisa Vucinic, Thomas Watteyne.

OpenWSN (http://www.openwsn.org/) is an open-source implementation of a fully standards-based protocol stack for the Internet of Things. It has become the de-facto implementation of the IEEE802.15.4e TSCH standard, has a vibrant community of academic and industrial users, and is the reference implementation of the work we do in the IETF 6TiSCH standardization working group.

The OpenWSN ADT started in 2015, with Research Engineer Tengfei Chang who joined the EVA team.

Highlights for 2016:

  • Development:

    • better (continuous) testing of the existing OpenWSN code.

    • Build a image for a RaspberryPi which contains the OpenVisualizer preinstalled.

    • Port OpenWSN to the First prototype of the “Single-Chip uMote” (SCuM), developed in Prof. Pister's lab at UC Berkeley.

    • Create a Virtual Machine image with all OpenWSN development tools preinstalled.

    • Implementation of 6TiSCH standards as they appear, including revisions.

    • Maintenance of the “Golden Image” used as a reference during interoperability testing

  • Recognition:

    • OpenWSN remains ETSI's reference implementation for IETF 6TiSCH-related standards. It is therefore the base for the ETSI's Golden Device for 6TiSCH standards, including IEEE802.15.4e TSCH, 6LoWPAN and RPL.
