ROSES - RObot assisted SEnsor networkS

The development and the control of self-organizing, self-configuring, self-healing, self-managing, and adaptive communication systems and networks are primary research aspects of the autonomic networking team. The employed embedded systems, e.g. sensor motes and mobile robots, are getting smaller, more mobile, and more energy aware. Novel mechanisms in operating systems, in the communication infrastructure, and in applications provide enormous energy savings. Sensor motes are used e.g. for the collection, the processing, and the communication of measurement data. Another research aspect of our group is the combination of mobile robot systems with stationary sensor networks. Such mobility enhancements as well as the limited resources in typical sensor networks lead to new problems, challenges, and solution spaces in terms of efficient data management and communication. In addition to engineering methods we investigate in bio-inspired methodologies learnt from cell and molecular biology to address these issues.
Research Goals
  • Energy efficient operation, communication, and navigation

  • Sensor assisted localization and navigation

  • Quality of service aware communication in heterogeneous mobile networks with dynamic topology

  • Optimized task allocation and communication based on application and energy constraints

  • Secure communication and data management in mobile sensor networks

Solution Space

  • Novel models for energy and application aware communication

  • Combination of different localization techniques for optimized high-precision navigation

  • Bio-inspired communication methods for information exchange and task allocation

  • Integration of mobile robots and stationary sensor nodes to autonomous mobile sensor/actuator networks
