Boomerang Delta Lifetime
Delta is an application distributed with Boomerang that demonstrates a simple form of low power mesh networking. Delta is by default configured for fast response times in small networks, suitable for quick demonstrations.
Delta application lifetime estimation tool
This tools uses a mathematical communication model of the Delta application to help understand the impact of communication rate, network size, and number of gateways on the estimated lifetime and required duty cycle of a Delta network. A small set of parameters are exposed suitable for users wanting to change the report rate and duty cycle of the Delta application.
The network is assumed to consist of standard Tmote Sky motes powered by two AA batteries.
