Implementation Aspects of ProNet 4.0

  • Reinhard GotzheinEmail author
Part of the Computer Communications and Networks book series (CCN)


In this chapter, we outline Black burst integrated Protocol Stack (BiPS) [2, 3], a real-time-capable implementation framework specifically devised for the protocols of ProNet 4.0 [1], and its implementation on the Imote2 [15] hardware platform.
