Dust Network

The Dust Network, developed by Dust Networks Inc., is a low-power radio-based meshed sensor network, Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). The Dust Network dates back to the 1990s and operates in the ISM band at 2.4 GHz

. In

terms ofconfiguration, a Dust Network consists of a manager entity and various nodes. The communication between the nodes and is time synchronous in time slots. The allocation method is a channel hopping method and is called Time Slotted Channel Hopping (TSCH). In the TSCH method, the time slots are allocated to the nodes with microsecond precision, so that the transmission times and reception times of all nodes are known. This has the advantage that the nodes are switched active

only for the time slots assigned to them, reducing the power consumption.The networks can have over a hundred nodes and operate compliant with 6LoWPAN and IEEE 802.15.4e. The manager unit records link values, supports monitoring and provides reporting. Redundantpaths

can be established due to the flexibility of the link routes and mappings. In addition, when battery power decreases, the active transmission modes and passive sleep modes can be changed. Dust Networks can be used in many industrial fields such as logistics and inventory as wireless sensor networks, sensing physical variables such as temperature, pressure, vibration, humidity, and many other variables.
