For common sensor/actuator applications in which signal data is only forwarded, ALOHA-protocol-based radio transmissions as well as full-stack radio solutions do not appear to be the most energy-efficient solutions. Thus, an own low-power and widely customizable radio solution has been developed. It is based on standard general purpose radio components and achieves high energy efficiency by use of time-controlled (TDMA) low duty-cycle transmissions. The presented solution is especially well suited to the task of periodic transmissions of measurement values. For demonstration, a sensor node has been implemented and the radio solution’s performance has been evaluated.
