Usually for the implementation of narrow-band wireless networks of the Internet of things, which are just of interest in this issue, LPWAN technologies are used.
The disadvantage of these technologies is the fact that a star topology is used for construction, which has significant disadvantages. For this class of networks, it is advisable to use self-organizing Mesh or AdHoc networks based on mesh topology, which will allow data to be delivered from the source to the receiver by relaying through intermediate nodes. Unfortunately, none of the LPWAN technologies involves the use of such a topology. As part of the work on the project, the team of the scientific school solves a whole range of tasks that will allow the development of self-organizing energy-efficient urban mesh networks for data collection and management of Internet of things in smart sustainable cities.
Theoretical studies will form the basis for creating a prototype hybrid MESH network that has no world analogues. The implementation of the project will not only prevent the Russian Federation from lagging behind in the described, rapidly developing field, but will also allow to get ahead of foreign developments, given the significant backlog of the scientific school. At the final stage of the project, pilot zones will be created to demonstrate the benefits of using the proposed networks, on which the main results of the work will be verified.
