    Abstract

    Low-power wearable devices are becoming increasingly important for fitness and healthcare applications. However, existing protocols based on the IEEE 802.15.4 low-power wireless standard are not optimized for data collection from mobile devices. This paper presents Instant: a schedule for the IEEE 802.15.4 TSCH protocol tailored for this application. We evaluate the data collection speed, energy consumption, and fairness of Instant, and show that Instant achieves several times higher data collection speed from mobile nodes compared with the state-of-the-art Orchestra schedule.
