Abstract

The goal of the GINSENG project is a performance-controlled sensor network suitable for applications with specific network performance requirements, such as plant automation and health monitoring. Any such sensor network must include a deterministic MAC protocol that can meet the application's targets in areas like delivery delays and reliability. We present a description and preliminary evaluation results of GinMAC, designed to be such a MAC protocol. Also included are details of a deployment to the GALP oil refinery in Sines, Portugal.
