Energy consumption is a major concern during the development of wireless networks consisting of battery-powered nodes. In this paper, we study possibilities of specifying energy aspects in the system design phase, with SDL as design language. In particular, we strive for suitable abstractions, by establishing a design view that is largely platform-independent. We achieve this objective by identifying and realizing
energy mode signaling
as two complementary approaches to incorporate energy aspects into SDL. We provide details on how to apply these approaches in order to control the energy consumption of CPU and transceiver, and how to implement them on the Imote2 platform. A case study illustrates the use of both approaches in a wireless networked control system.
