Poster: Network Bootstrapping and Leader Election Utilizing the Capture Effect in Low-power Wireless Networks
Conference poster, 2017
Many protocols in low-power wireless networks require a root node or a leader to bootstrap and maintain its operation.
For example, Chaos and Glossy networks need an initiator to synchronize and initiate the communications rounds.
Commonly, these protocols use a fixed, compile-time defined node as the leader.
In this work, we tackle the challenge of dynamically bootstrapping the network and electing a leader in low-power wireless scenarios, and we focus on Chaos-style networks.
