TinyOS 2.0 ZigBee Working Group



The purpose of the TinyOS ZigBee WG is to
1- Implement and maintain a standard-compliant implementation of the ZigBee-Pro specs,
2- Build the ZigBee stack upon the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol stack developed by the TinyOS 802.15.4 WG,
3- Provide enhancements/variants/add-ons to the ZigBee standard protocol in terms of of QoS, synchronization services, security, low-power routing, etc.

The prospective implementation of the IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee protocol stack under TinyOS will be based on the merging of two already existing implementations from ISEP-IPP (open-ZB.net) and TUB (TKN154).


Goals for 2009

1- Implementation of ZigBee routing protocols: cluster-tree routing, mesh routing,
2- Low Power Routing Extension,
3- Implementation of Application Layer Features,
4- Implementation of Security Mechanisms,
5- Export the implementation to TOSSIM,
6- Align Network Layer interfaces with MAC interfaces of the TinyOS 15.4 WG implementation.
