Analytical and Experimental Evaluation of Wake-up Receivers based protocols


Achieving energy efficient wireless communication is the most pursued goal in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), as energy consumption is typically a major barrier to long term applications. In recent years, ultra-low power Wake-up Receivers (WuRx) have emerged, enabling pure asynchronous wireless communication that eliminates energy waste due to idle listening. However, to achieve a significant increase of energy efficiency compared to traditional duty-cycling approaches, Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols exploiting WuRx must be carefully designed. Therefore, we propose an analytical framework to model MAC protocols, leveraging WuRx or not, which gives an important evaluation of power consumption, latency and reliability. This framework was used to both model a WuRx-based MAC protocol, and to model two other state-of-the art MAC protocols for WSNs not using WuRx. Experimental power consumption and latency measurements were conducted to validate the proposed framework and the MAC protocol leveraging WuRx. Analytical results show the convenience of using WuRx and quantify the benefits of this emerging technology. These results demonstrate that using WuRx achieves up to 135 times lower power consumption and up to 23 times lower latency compared to traditional approaches in typical low throughput WSNs applications.
