This paper is focused on Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) leveraging on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connectivity for low energy applications which is fault tolerant versus communication path failures. The topic is important to create a robust sensorized environment to be applied in industrial context or smart infrastructure to enable scheduled monitoring with low power consumption applications. Currently BLE applications are mainly thought for smart home solutions, health care and positioning systems. In those applications the BLE nodes are continuously supplied by external power suppliers. Our goal is to design a self-configuring network with a synchronized deep sleep behavior, aimed to optimize the energy consumption, with an overall active time interval constraint optimized with a data-driven method. The aim is to find a tradeoff between the on time and the ability to collect all the nodes data, pursuing a low power consumption. Our research is based on BLE protocols, interaction between edge systems for data collection and cloud system for data analysis and software agent optimization system. The paper analyses different configurations and describes the possible optimization algorithm to be used for the software agent design, in order to reach a fine-tuned control to improve the fault tolerance and fault diagnosis of the system. Finally experimental results are compared with the estimates obtained via a software simulation tool implemented for this architectural pattern.
