Johannes Blobel, "Energy Efficient Communication using Wake-up Receivers," Proceedings of International Conference on Networked Systems (NetSys 2019), PhD Forum, Munich, Germany, March 2019.


For many years duty-cycling protocols in its various forms have been the standard way of achieving low energy consumption for communication systems. They do, however, lead to an increased delay and communication complexity and suffer from the inherent clock drift of the communicating nodes. Therefore the achievable energy savings and performance is limited. In recent years a new technology, called Wake-up receivers have been proposed that can solve these problems with an additional ultra low-power radio chip. In my PhD thesis I investigate how this technology can be used in various applications ranging from wildlife monitoring using sensor networks to low-power WLAN for the Internet-of-Things (IoT).
