Meeting Notes for 04/10/2009
* CTP code cleanup * Standardizing startup/init for protocols * Responding to changed AM address * IPSN Tutorial
* Phil, Stanford * Om, USC * Razvan, JHU * Mike, JHU
CTP code cleanup
Om: I think it is a good idea to clean up the code so that it is easier for people to build applications on top of it.
Phil: There are also places where the code can be smaller, such as the forwarding path.
Razvan: The trickle part is tightly integrated with the code, maybe there is a way to make it easier to understand.
Standardizing startup/init for protocols
Om: I think there are confusions over the semantics of start/stop/init commands. What abut boot? A related question is how an application can restart a protocol. These questions came up when we were working with FTSP.
Phil: Boot is mainly for applications, and it notifies them that the system has booted. We need to think more about the sematics.
Responding to changed AM address
Om: Do net2 protocols still work after the AM address is changed?
Phil: Dissemination will still work because it uses broadcast.
Om: There might be problems with CTP.
Phil: An idea for the hands-on session is to have the group send their names to a base station with CTP. I will bring 10 motes.
Razvan: We will provide VMWare player, VMWare image, and live CD.
