Adaptive Communication System for Extreme Power Line Networks
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
An ad-hoc networking method is proposed for use over existing power lines in large commercial buildings. The network is minimally sensitive to lossy elements such as distribution transformers and tripped or OFF circuit breakers and hardware may be made interoperable with existing power line communication systems. Adaption performance of the network is programmable so that various sensor requirements may be accomodated with near optimal power efficiency. The proposed prototypes will maximize use of commercially available and programmable components so as to minimize cost and functional risk.
