Abstract

Wired fieldbuses have long been proven effective in supporting Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). However, various domains are now striving for wireless solutions due to ease of deployment or novel functionality requiring the ability to support mobile devices. Low-power wireless protocols have been proposed in response to this need, but requirements of a large class of CPS applications can still not be satisfied. We thus propose Time-Triggered Wireless (TTW), a distributed low-power wireless system design that minimizes communication energy consumption and offers end-to-end timing predictability, runtime adaptability, reliability, and low latency. Evaluation shows a 2× reduction in communication latency and 33-40% lower radio-on time compared with DRP, the closest related work, validating the suitability of TTW for new exciting wireless CPS applications.
