Abstract: Communication protocols for wireless sensor networks reduce the energy consumption by duty cycling the node activity and adopting a periodic sleeping scheduling. This approach often results in idle listening and therefore energy dissipated for listening to a channel free from packet transmitted. Duty cycling trades-off energy consumption due to idle listening and high end-to-end delay. Proposed solutions mitigate this issue for example through extra low-power radio components (wake-up radio) that listen to the radio and wake-up the node if some channel activity is sensed. These extra components also consume some energy to listen to the channel. In contrast, we propose an on-demand wake-up capability, namely RFIDimpulse, which is achieved through using an off-the-shelf batteryless RFID tag attached to each sensor node that is also provided with RFID reader capability. Because modern RFID techniques can trigger all the neighbouring tags at once or pinpoint a particular tag, RFIDimpluse provides both unicast and multicast capability. RFIDimpulse allows eventdriven communication and eliminates node idle listening.
