MOTIVE - tiMe-OpTimized contextual Information flow on unmanned VEhicles project experimental results

The experimentation data were collected during the 6th Fed4FIRE+ Open Call ( using the mobile nodes of the w-iLab.t (link) testbed. During this Open Call we proposed to evaluate the performance of an optimization model for temporal control of the transmission of messages from an IoT mobile device. This mechanism is based on a network condition model that transits from favourable to adverse conditions and vice versa. All these transitions are monitored and validated through our system (change detection and optimal stopping). If a network is performing properly then the transmission control can be relaxed to exploit available resources.The main contribution of MOTIVE is to apply a sequential decision-making process (DMP) on IoT devices that leverages the on-line derived network statistics to efficiently control their telemetry measurements transmission.

Our data collected from the experimentation using the testbed's devices consists of network related information, packet error rate and latency. We collected data from a completely functional mobile node that operates in a saturated network and five mobile nodes in the same circumstances. Saturated conditions were generated by data produced by twenty static sensors for the duration of the each experiment. On each run we collected more than 2 * 105 samples. The comparative assessment we did was based on five different policies of decision making: i) no-policy model, ii) the heuristic threshold based model in which the transmission of the messages is paused when a specific threshold of quality network is below a threshold, iii) TOCP model which overviews the quality of network in normal mode and gets in pausing mode when a change is detected; the pausing period lasts for a specific threshold and then it is activated again, iv) TOCP-DRP and the v) fair TOCP-DRP which enters in pausing mode if a change is indicated by TOCP decision making model.

The datasets include the packet error rate and the latency of each device, for each experiment, and the critical areas found during the experiments (most saturated areas).

The datatset includes for each scenario(experiment) the participating devices and the Latency and Packet Error Rate(PER) per policy( NoPolicy, Heuristic, TOCP, TOCPDRP, TOCPDRPFAIR), apart from scenarioA(single node) where only four policies are present, since the TOCPDRPFAIR applies with more that one participating nodes.
