Volker Turau und Christoph Weyer. Fault Tolerance in Wireless Sensor Networks through Self-Stabilization. International Journal of Communication Networks and Distributed Systems, 2(1):78–98, 2009.
@Article{Telematik_TW_2009_SelfStabilization, author = {Volker Turau and Christoph Weyer}, title = {Fault Tolerance in Wireless Sensor Networks through Self-Stabilization}, pages = {78-98}, journal = {International Journal of Communication Networks and Distributed Systems}, volume = {2}, number = {1}, year = 2009, }
Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) suffer from resource limitations, high failure rates and faults caused by the lossy nature of wireless communication. This can lead to situations, where nodes lose synchrony and programs reach arbitrary states. Traditional approaches to fault tolerance like fault masking or global resets are not feasible for WSNs. Applying the concepts of self-stabilisation to achieve fault tolerance is a promising concept. However, the majority of self-stabilising algorithms found in the literature is based on models not suitable for WSNs. This paper proposes a problem-independent transformation for algorithms that stabilise under the central daemon scheduler such that they meet the demands of a WSN. Furthermore, a comparison with transformers from the literature is made through a series of simulations. Finally, the proposed transformer is evaluated with a real sensor network in a field test.

Abstract: A new data monitoring method for wireless sensor networks is introduced. The method combines geographic hash tables with in-network aggregation. Queries are processed in regions, whose sensor nodes collect their values in nodes close to a determinated location within the region, where they can easily be requested from outside. The method is robust against node failures and movements and generates very little network traffic. This is confirmed by various simulations.

Abstract: It is well known that complex networks are vulnerable to the failure of hubs in terms of structural robustness. An as yet less researched topic is dynamical robustness, which refers to the ability of a network to maintain its dynamical activity against local disturbances. This paper analyzes the impact of overload attacks in complex networks and gives a precise definition of this type of attack using the load redistribution model. The main contribution is a greedy algorithm to select a small number of candidates for an overload attack maximizing the impact with respect to the number of failed nodes and load increase. The quality of the algorithm is analyzed for a real power grid network.

@InProceedings{Telematik_Adhoc-Now_2015, author = {Gerry Siegemund and Volker Turau and Christoph Weyer}, title = {A Dynamic Topology Control Algorithm for Wireless Sensor Networks}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the International Conference on Ad-hoc, Mobile and Wireless Networks, ADHOC-NOW 2015}, pages = {3-18}, month = jun, year = 2015, location = {Athens, Greece}, }
Abstract: Topology control algorithms (TCAs) are used in wireless sensor networks to reduce interference by carefully choosing communication links. Since the quality of the wireless channel is subject to fluctuations over time TCAs must repeatedly recompute the topology. TCAs ensure quick adjustment to new or deteriorating links while preventing precipitant changes due to transient faults. This paper contributes a novel dynamic TCA that provides a compromise between agility and stability, and constructs connected topologies for low latency routing. Furthermore, it enforces memory restrictions and is of high practical relevance for real sensor network hardware.

Abstract: Self-stabilizing algorithms (SSA) are defined on the assumption that either the system's topology is fixed over time or topology changes are isolated events occurring at a very low rate. These assumptions are not valid in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) where link qualities change rapidly. The contribution of this paper is a neighbourhood management protocol (NMP) providing a neighbourhood relation sufficiently stable to apply existing SSAs in WSNs.

@InProceedings{Telematik_REWT_HoPS, author = {Christian Renner and Sebastian Ernst and Christoph Weyer and Volker Turau}, title = {Prediction Accuracy of Link-Quality Estimators}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the 8th European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN'11)}, day = {23-25}, month = feb, year = 2011, location = {Bonn, Germany}, note = {Acceptance rate 20%}, }
Abstract: The accuracy of link-quality estimators (LQE) is mission-critical in many application scenarios in wireless sensor networks (WSN), since the link-quality metric is used for routing decisions or neighborhood formation. Link-quality estimation must offer validity for different timescales. Existing LQEs describe and approximate the current quality in a single value only. This method leads to a limited accuracy and expressiveness about the presumed future behavior of a link. The LQE developed in this paper incorporates four quality metrics that give a holistic assessment of the link and its dynamic behavior; therefore, this research is an important step to achieving a higher prediction accuracy including knowledge about the short- and long-term behavior.

@InProceedings{Telematik_RTW_EnergyEfficientTDMA, author = {Christian Renner and Volker Turau and Christoph Weyer}, title = {Performance of Energy-Efficient TDMA Schemes in Data-Gathering Scenarios with Periodic Sources}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the 7th IEEE International Conference on Networked Sensing Systems (INSS'10)}, day = {15-18}, month = jun, year = 2010, location = {Kassel, Germany}, note = {Acceptance rate 22%}, }
Abstract: Energy-efficient transportation of periodical sensor readings towards a single sink in wireless sensor networks is a challenging task. In general, two data-gathering strategies exist: on-demand and bulk data forwarding. For both strategies, cross-layer techniques are a promising approach, where TDMA is tailored to the underlying routing tree. Therefore, different TDMA schemes are compared regarding achievable throughput, packet delay, and energy-efficiency for various sampling rates and scenarios. Existing schemes perform well in dedicated topologies only. The new and simple TDMA scheme presented in this paper outperforms its predecessors in all scenarios under consideration. These findings are substantiated by both theoretical analysis and extensive simulation.

@InProceedings{Telematik_WLT_2009_SelfWISE, author = {Christoph Weyer and Volker Turau and Andreas Lagemann and Jörg Nolte}, title = {Programming Wireless Sensor Networks in a Self-Stabilizing Style}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Sensor Technologies and Applications (SENSORCOMM'09)}, day = {18-23}, month = jun, year = 2009, location = {Athens, Greece}, }
Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) operate in an unstable environment and thus are subject to arbitrary transient faults. Self-stabilization is a promising technique to add tolerance against transient faults in a self-contained non-masking way. A core factor for the applicability of a given self-stabilizing algorithm is its convergence time. This paper analyses the average stabilization time of three algorithms commonly regarded as central building blocks for WSNs. The analysis is accomplished with SelfWISE, a framework providing programming abstractions for selfstabilizing algorithms. The performed analysis considers the target models as well as network size and density. This demonstrates the usability of SelfWISE for evaluating selfstabilizing algorithms under a wide range of models.

Abstract: TinyAID is a tool that supports automated instrumentation and evaluation of TinyOS-based distributed applications. Two types of instrumentations are provided: logging of call chains and message flows within the network. TinyAID assists the debugging process by post evaluation of the logged data. A main benefit is the visualization component for representing traces in their spatial and temporal order. The instrumentation and evaluation concepts are evaluated in two case studies: the SelfWISE framework and a selection of routing algorithms. Due to the automated process of TinyAID the evaluation could be performed without a deeper knowledge of the implementations under test. In the first case TinyAID revealed a weakness in the TOSSIM random number generator. The second case demonstrates the power of TinyAID to visualize the quality of protocols in a unified manner, without any manual changes to the specific source code.

Abstract: This paper introduces SelfWISE, a framework for enabling wireless sensor networks to be programmed in a self-stabilizing manner. The framework eases the formal specification of algorithms by abstracting from low-level details such as wireless channel and hardwarespecific characteristics. SelfWISE consists of a language for expressing self-stabilizing algorithms, a runtime environment for simulating algorithms in wireless sensor networks, and supporting tools. The hereby applied transformation of formally described algorithms into the simulation environment preserves the self-stabilizing properties. Development, evaluation, and debugging of self-stabilizing algorithms is considerably facilitated by utilizing SelfWISE.

Abstract: In this paper an efficient TDMA slot assignment for the many-to-one routing pattern in wireless sensor networks is presented and analyzed. This assignment scheme is based on a simple to implement heuristic, named spatial path-based reuse (SPR). By considering several metrics, the superiority of this heuristic with respect to energy consumption and runtime compared to proposals found in the literature is demonstrated.

Abstract: A particular class of data intensive wireless sensor networks are those networks where sensors periodically measure data with high rates. The focus of this work is on the efficient transport of high volumes of sampled data through a multi-hop network with limited resources using a routing tree. This paper analyzes TDMA schemes for this purpose with respect to buffer usage and energy consumption. In particular, it is shown, that classical TDMA schemes are not optimal for tree-routing in data-intensive sensor networks.

Abstract: This paper presents the design of a long-term reliable data gathering service for many-to-one communication in wireless sensor networks: all nodes send periodically delaytolerant data to a single node. The service operates reliably despite strict resource constraints, poor link qualities, and frequent disconnects. This paper presents a novel protocol for gathering periodically measured data including a solution for the wearleveling problem of the EEPROM. Furthermore, theoretical limits of this approach based on available bandwidth and local memory are provided. Finally, preliminary results of an implementation of the service are presented. In particular a detailed analysis of the energy consumption during the different phases of this experiment is provided.

@InProceedings{Telematik_TW_2007_SchedulingBulkData, author = {Volker Turau and Christoph Weyer}, title = {Scheduling Transmission of Bulk Data in Sensor Networks using a Dynamic TDMA Protocol}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the International Workshop on Data Intensive Sensor Networks (DISN'07)}, pages = {321-325}, day = {1}, month = may, year = 2007, location = {Mannheim, Germany}, }
Abstract: Sensor networks are increasingly used for applications in which sensors periodically measure data with high sampling rates. The reliable transport of high volumes of sampled data through a multi-hop network with limited resources requires sophisticated algorithms. This paper presents a novel protocol for this task that uses minimal energy, provides high throughput, and requires only small amounts of additional buffer. The protocol is based on a dynamic TDMA scheme and is robust against omission failures.

Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) pose challenges not present in classical distributed systems: resource limitations, high failure rates, and ad hoc deployment. The lossy nature of wireless communication can lead to situations, where nodes lose synchrony and programs reach arbitrary states. Traditional approaches to fault tolerance like replication or global resets are not feasible. In this work, the concept of self-stabilization is applied to WSNs. The majority of self-stabilizing algorithms found in the literature is based on models not suitable for WSNs: shared memory model, central daemon scheduler, unique processor identifiers, and atomicity. This paper proposes problem-independent transformations for algorithms that stabilize under the central daemon scheduler such that they meet the demands of a WSN. The transformed algorithms use randomization and are probabilistically self-stabilizing. This work allows to utilize many known self-stabilizing algorithms in WSNs. The proposed transformations are evaluated using simulations and a real WSN.

@InProceedings{Telematik_VWT_2005_WebService, author = {Marcus Venzke and Christoph Weyer and Volker Turau}, title = {Application Specific vs. Standard Web Service Interfaces for the Vertical Integration of Fieldbus Systems}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the Third Workshop on Intelligent Solutions in Embedded Systems (WISES'05)}, pages = {153-162}, day = {20}, month = may, year = 2005, location = {Hamburg, Germany}, }
Abstract: The paper compares two approaches for developing Web service interfaces for the vertical integration of TTP/A fieldbus systems. High-level abstractions are provided by application specific interfaces, generated from metadata describing fieldbus systems. In contrast standardised interfaces such as OPC XML DA only allow lower levels of abstractions. But these enable accessing the fieldbus system from a broad range of standard clients, while high-level abstractions reflecting the application programmer's view on the system facilitate the development of more specific clients and workflows.

Abstract: This paper is concerned with the vertical integration of fieldbus systems. It presents a generic technique to expose data and control of fieldbus systems in a semantically rich way to applications located at the level of operational management. To provide a high degree of interoperability between the operational level and different fieldbus systems we utilize standardized techniques such as XML, HTTP, and Web services which can be deployed independently of the platform. The proposed service is based on the interface file system for TTP/A smart transducers. The defined interface provides high level abstractions appropriate for the integration into business applications and considers the latency introduced by the internet protocols. The operations of the service are automatically generated from meta-data descriptions of the smart transducers and their combination into larger clusters.

Abstract: Knowledge of neighboring nodes is a fundamental requirement of many algorithms in the field of wireless sensor networks. The neighborhood relation of nodes is defined by their ability to communicate directly and not by their proximity. Due to the temporal changes of the wireless channel, link qualities must be continuously estimated. In this paper a new approach based on holistic packet statistics is presented. Unlike existing estimation techniques it forswears from squeezing a link's characteristics into a single value. The benefit of this approach is substantiated by an evaluation utilizing real-world and synthetic data.

Abstract: Long living and unattended deployments of wireless sensor networks requires fault-tolerant solutions. Self-stabilizing algorithms are providing these properties in an elegant and verifiable way. Recently, a lot of research has been performed to determine appropriate means to apply these promising technique to wireless sensor networks. In this paper the current state of the art in this field is given. Additionally, three major challenges are presented for achieving self-stabilizing sensor networks.

Abstract: The exploratory focus of the SomSed research field is the interdisciplinary research on self organizing mobile sensor and data networks. Since the founding of SomSed in 2007, great progress in scientific research has been achieved and much practical knowledge has been gathered using a prototype network permanently installed. This prototype network, from hereon referred to as CampusNet, is the basis for further investigations and offers the possibility to perform long term measurements in a large scale and real environment. The scope of this paper is to outline the current status of the SomSed research field and to briefly discuss future developments.

Abstract: In many application scenarios of wireless sensor networks parts or the whole network consist of mobile sensor nodes. Currently, no common platform is available. This paper describes a project that has developed a mobile sensor node, based on standard components: a Crossbow IRIS mote and LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT components, i.e., motors and sensors.

Abstract: The research field "Self organized mobile Sensor and Data-networks" (SomSeD) is introduced. Its purpose is the in- vestigation of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). It benefits from interdisciplinary exchange between various institutes of the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). Due to different design constraints (such as energy-efficiency and package size) compared to well known classical computer networks, all aspects of the development of WSNs must be reconsidered. This paper describes the advantage of having experts of various faculties both in computer science and electrical engineering in a single research field. In addition to the introduction of the participating institutes, the de- ployment of a WSN on the TUHH campus will be outlined.

Abstract: Neighborhood relations are changing over time in wireless sensor networks due to different hardware or environmental effects. These effects and memory limitations require a balanced neighborhood management to ensure agility, stability, symmetry, and connectivity. The proposed neighborhood management protocol Mahalle is optimized with regard to these four criteria. Agility and stability are achieved by ALE, a new adaptive link estimator.
