|PDF - Accepted Version|
Low power radio networks are the networks which depend upon wireless radio links and consume very low energy for their operation. These networks suit best for applications where frequent renewal of power supply is not possible. Power supply has always remained a major concern in radio networks. An efficient low power consuming network is always recommended for greater mobility and lifetime of the network. This thesis introduces low power radio networks, their features and applications. Energy concerns and various techniques that can be used for energy conservation are discussed, along with the security techniques that can be used to make the system reliable. Different technologies available in the market and their features and applications are considered. Included is a detailed study of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. A simulation study of the CSMA/CA algorithm and topology discovery algorithms is presented.
