The Internet of Things (IoT) is a worldwide technological revolution, bringing about new challenges in networking and data collection. The Routing Protocol for Low Power and Lossy Networks (RPL) is the industry standard for IoT Wireless Sensor Networks. This project studied the performance of RPL, focusing on evaluating the performance of four variations of the Trickle timer algorithm. The team performed all tests on a simulated environment using the Cooja network simulator. Overall, our newest proposed algorithm, ME-Trickle produced better results than the other algorithms under conditions of less dense networks. All four Trickle variants demonstrate sensitivity to changes in network configuration and density.
