Abstract

We plan to design and implement software defined intelligent antenna switching capability to wireless sensor nodes based on link quality metric, such as Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI). In this paper, as a first step, we discuss the preliminary results of our newly designed radio module (Inverted-F Antenna) for 2.4 GHz bandwidth wireless sensor networks. In this perspective, we consider the TelosB motes and compare the performance of the built-in TelosB antenna with our proposed antenna. Experimental results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed radio module i.e., 5% to 12% gain over the built-in radio module of the TelosB motes.
