English Abstract

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology is used to support service delivery in various real-life application such as the medical section.

The routing protocol for Low Power and Loss Network (RPL) is outlined to serve a suitable routing protocol for packets in WSN.

There are many important issues in the RPL protocol like packet loss within the WSN and sensor power consumption.

Various Objective Functions (OF) in RPL aimed to find the routes from source nodes to a destination node.

In this thesis, we will provide an evaluation to find which OF is more logical for a WSN in the medical section where the Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR) of WSN and the sensors' power consumption are important concerns.

Expected transmission Count (ETX) and Objective Function Zero (OF0) of RPL were experienced in multiple network densities and network topologies such as the grid and random topology to determine the most effective objective function of WSN design in the medical section.

The experiments were design to compare single instance RPL and multi-instance RPL to specify the most effective in WSN in terms of power consumption and the rate of packet delivery and an average of latency time.

The experiments were conducted in the Cooja simulator, where the WSN network consists of a group of twenty-five nodes.

The nodes are distributed in the network forming two topologies; random and grid.

The simulation results showed that the OF0 is more efficient regarding the PDR and power consumption compared to the ETX in random topology.

In additions, the PDR value is better in OF0 function and power consumption, the average of latency time has a large difference between single and multi-instance RPL protocol as well as the effect by the network density and RX values.
