Original Abstract

This paper is motivated by the lack of distributed algorithm implementations on wireless sensor networks (WSN) in hardware. We deal exemplary with the implementation of the well-known average consensus algorithm. By formulating the algorithm into nesC, a C derivative, it is possible to enrich the knowledge of the algorithm with practical information, specific to embedded devices such as nodes. We created a simple mechanism of a time scheduled access to share the wireless channel among the nodes and guarantee a collision free environment, in which our implementation is tested. Our achieved results are consistent with theory.
