Contiki Network Stack


Four Layers
1. Network layer
2. MAC (Medium Access Control) layer
3. RDC (Radio Duty Cycling) layer
4. Radio layer




Network & Routing Layer

Contiki automatically forms a wireless IPv6 network with the help of routing protocol called RPL (Routing Protocol for Low-power and Lossy Networks (LLNs)).
RPL forms routing graph from root node or AP (Access Point). It builds acyclic graph from root node called DODAG (Destination Oriented Directed Acyclic Graph).

RPL DODAG

DIO (DODAG Information Object) messages are broadcast by all nodes starting from the root node. It includes the node's rank, ETX, etc.

Network Formation

The node selects a parent based on the received DIO messages and calculates its rank.
