PhD thesis: Opportunistic Communication in Extreme Wireless Sensor Networks


Sensor networks can nowadays deliver 99.9% of their data with duty cycles below 1%. This remarkable performance is, however, dependent on some important underlying assumptions: low traffic rates, medium size densities and static nodes.
In this thesis, we investigate the performance of these same resource-constrained devices, but under scenarios that present extreme conditions: high traffic rates, high densities and mobility: the so-called Extreme Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSNs).
