Title: Extending ABB's WirelessHART Tool
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Advanced
The main purpose of the ToolsWH project is to provide an extension to the existent body of work in the area of support for the design of WirelessHART networks.
The state of the art in the context consist of several somehow disparate aspects of both theoretical and practical results, with tools supporting system descriptions at a high level of abstraction and only a few implemented features. Simulation scenarios for several key aspects of networked operations (such as packet loss, timing, etc) are available. The development framework is Matlab/Simulink, with the additional toolbox TrueTime.
The goal is to provide a toolset that would enable complete application development and deployment on WirelessHART networks, with emulation / simulation support.
At the same time, a harmonization of the approach considering the latest versions of the TrueTime toolbox must be obtained.


The work would follow the targets briefly mentioned below:
Creation of a design development tool, to be seen also as a test-bed for novel developments:
- Address the present limitations
- Multi-channel
- Retransmission
- Synchronization CPU-Network
- New scheduling algorithms to fit control
- Packet combining / error correction
- Data aggregation
