Use of GPS and 6LowPAN in Mobile Multi-Sink Wireless Sensor Networks - Issues and Feasibility



Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been the
subject of intensive research in the past few years. Several factors
have contributed to this, among which the enormous potential for
application of WSNs in almost every aspect of day-to-day life is
the predominant one. In spite of this, real deployments of WSNs
are rare, and virtually all have considerable limitations when
node mobility is concerned. Clearly, there is a mismatch between
research and reality, and work on deployment, localization,
mobility and other hot topics is not producing useful results,
which points to the need to give smaller, more practical steps
towards real world deployments. This paper is about such a
step, by proposing an integration of heterogenous localization
techniques, for which single-hop communication, Mobility and
6LowPAN are cornerstones. The paper discusses several issues
of the proposal and provides experimental data in support of its
