Introduction

This tutorial helps you to understand how to measure Radio Signal Strength (RSS) received by a Tmote Sky. In this tutorial we have one sender and one receiver. Receiver receives the packet and display the RSS value of the packet received.

You can find the step by step simulation in the next section "RSS Measurement Program on Cooja" and you can find the C code in the subsequent section.


RSS Measurement Program on Cooja

Step 1

Create New Simulation on Cooja. Let's say we call our simulation as "RSS".

Step 2

Create Motes.

Step 3

Browse the firmware. Note: You can find the code later in this tutorial.

Step 4

Compile the firmware.

Step 5

Select number of new motes=2. Note: We are uploading same firmware on both the motes. One will act as Sender and another will act as Receiver.

Step 6

Start the simulation.

Step 7

You can see the RSSI value in the mote output window. These RSSI values are in dBm.

           if(!rimeaddr_cmp(&oldparent, &rimeaddr_null))
           {
              printf("#L %d 0\n", oldparent.u8[0]);
           }
           if(!rimeaddr_cmp(parent, &rimeaddr_null)) 
           {
              printf("#L %d 1\n", parent->u8[0]);
           }
           
           rimeaddr_copy(&oldparent, parent);
        }
      }
    }

  } //end of while

  PROCESS_END();
} //end of process thread
 

Understanding the Code

1-static const struct collect_callbacks callbacks = { recv };

callbacks = { recv } calls the recv() function when a packet is received.


2-collect_open(&tc, 130, COLLECT_ROUTER, &callbacks);

Opens a connection.


3-collect_set_sink(&tc, 1);

Sets the node as sink. Note that we are setting node 1.0 as the sink here.


4-collect_send(&tc, 15);

Sends data through the link.


5-etimer_set(&et, CLOCK_SECOND * 1);

This will set the timer to repeat the iterations every 1 seconds.


6-if(rimeaddr_node_addr.u8[0] != 1 )

This if condition will work only for the source nodes i.e. node id != 1.
