Our paper entitled Whitelisting without Collisions for Centralized Scheduling in Wireless Industrial Networks has been accepted for Publication in IEEE Internet of Things journal
We investigated the problem of whitelisting. First of all, tt consists in identifying the radio channels which provide the highest reliability. Then, we modify the pseudo-random hopping sequence to use only these good channels. By re-arranging properly the set of channels in the different whitelists, we are able to keep the fully deterministic characteristics while still avoiding collisions.
We exploited a real dataset to assess the performance of this whitelisting. In particular, we improved the reliability of all the links. Thus, whitelisting is efficient to improve the efficiency.
