Ph.d.-kandidat / overingeniør

Admar Ajith Kumar Somappa disputerer for ph.d.-graden med en avhandling om forbedring av oppsett for kommunikasjon i et trådløst nettverk av sensorer.

Oppsettet – protokollen – som A. Ajith Kumar S. har forsket fram, forbedrer eksisterende løsninger – noe som reduserer energiforbruket og forlenger det trådløse nettverkets brukstid.

Bruksområdet for forskningen er først og fremst industriell automasjon, men også e-helse kan anvende kunnskapsen.

Admar Ajith Kumar Somappa har fulgt Fakultet for teknologi og realfags doktorgradsprogram med spesialisering i IKT.

Slik beskriver kandidaten selv essensen i avhandlingen:

A Dual-Mode Adaptive MAC Protocol (DMAMAC) for Process Control in Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks (IWSN)

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a rapidly growing domain, now an integral part of the Internet of Things (IoT) movement.

The following thesis concerns with communication protocols used in WSN.

The thesis particularly focuses on the industrial automation domain (within IWSN), and proposed a communication protocol called the DMAMAC protocol. This protocol improves on existing solutions to provide low energy consumption and longer network availability. An e.g. application could be temperature control in a room.

But, apart from the industrial automation domain, the DMAMAC protocol is applicable across domains into healthcare automation, and home automation.

The main contribution of the thesis is the proposal of the protocol, which was also thoroughly analysed using various tools and techniques to ensure its performance.

Further, model driven software engineering methods to create new protocol prototypes in a shorter duration were proposed.
