Abstract:

In order to provide a step towards the goal of passing TCPIP traffic across wireless sensor networks, a method for file transfer utilizing forward error correction FEC is studied. Previous work in the area of terminal communication across the sensor network is expanded upon to include file transfer in order to provide a more capable channel and a basis for testing the performance obtained through erasure coding. The results of the FEC implementation are examined using multiple sensor network configurations. The study is completed with recommendations for continued work towards developing tunneled TCPIP data transfer across wireless sensor networks.
