Network was OpenMote (root) → scum → scum. Adding 1 more scum is next.
Maybe getting an OpenMote to join the network with a SCuM parent after a chain of 2-3 scums.
Would require using opentimer instead of direct access to capture/compare registers
Beware low PDR (60-70%) if the receiver is on for a long time vs. being duty cycled. Root cause as yet unknown.
Also helpful is to powercycle the radio every ~100 ms.
Open question is whether the missed packets are periodic, e.g., 3 OK 1 missed etc.
@Austin Patel interested in a star network, OpenMote (root) → 5x scum, current results should support that network.
Data rate will be limited because OpenMote can only Rx from one scum at a time.
If OpenWSN is using 10 ms slots, mean latency should be 25 ms. Packet loss must be accounted for too.
Music needs 1 ms latency, typical gaming is 20-70 ms response, high performance gaming is 1 ms. Typical human eye to hand reaction time is 70 ms.
