Wireless Sensor Networks " Mesh Networking"


  • Self-forming, Self-healing
  • Low-power (5+ years of Battery-life)
  • Flexible Topologies – Including Star, Hybrid-Star and Mesh
XMesh is a full featured multi-hop, ad-hoc, mesh networking protocol developed by Crossbow for wireless networks. An XMesh network consists of nodes (Motes) that wirelessly communicate to each other and are capable of hopping radio messages to a base station where they are passed to a PC or other client. The hopping effectively extends radio communication range and reduces the power required to transmit messages.
By hopping data in this way, XMesh can provide two critical benefits, improved radio coverage and improved reliability. Two nodes do not need to be within direct radio range of each other to communicate. A message can be delivered to one or more nodes in-between which will route the data. Likewise, if there is a bad radio link between two nodes, that obstacle can be overcome by rerouting around the area of bad service. Typically the nodes run in a low power mode, spending most of their time in a sleep state, in order to achieve multi-year battery -life.
XMesh is a software library, using the TinyOS operating system that runs on embedded devices called Motes. All wireless mesh networking systems share a set of common requirements. These include:

  • Low-power Consumption
  • Ease-of-Use
  • Scalability
  • Responsiveness
  • Range
