Simulation and compiler support for communication and mobility for environment sensing

Abstract : Long-range radio transmissions open new sensor application fields, in particular for environment monitoring. For example, the LoRa radio protocol enables to connect remote sensors at distance as long as ten kilometers in a line-of-sight. However, the large area covered also brings several difficulties, such as the placement of sensing devices in regard to topology in geography, or the variability of communication latency. Sensing the environment also carries constraints related to the inlerest of sensing points in relation with a physical phenomenon. Thus criteria for designs are evolving a lot from the existing methods, especially in complex terrains. This thesis describes simulation techniques based on geography analysis to compute long-range radio coverages and radio characteristics in these situations. As radio propagation is just a particular case of physical phenomena, it is shown how a unified approach also allows to characterize the behavior of potential physical risks. The case of heavy rainfall and flooding is investigated. Geography analysis is achieved using segmentation tools to produce cellular systems which are in turn translated into code for high-þerformance computations. The thesis provides results from practical complex terrain experiments using LoRa which confirm the accuracy of the simulation, and scheduling characteristics for sample networks. Performance tables are produced for these simulations on current Graphics Processing Units (GPUs).
