Stephen Dawson-Haggerty, Arsalan Tavakoli and David E. Culler

We are investigating issues involved with implementing an IPv6-based network architecture on embedded devices. As part of our research, we have developed a free, open implementation of the 6lowpan adaptation layer, and are currently developing software to allow these devices to participate in the internet. Some key challenges include robust routing algorithms and network configuration.
