Approved written proposal for adding RPL to smoltcp funded by NLnet

Activiteit: Written proposal

Description

Implement Routing Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy networks

Smoltcp is a TCP/IP library written in the Rust programming language. The Rust language offers many advantages, such as memory safety. The smoltcp library recently gained support for the 6LoWPAN protocol, enabling IPv6 for IEEE802.15.4 devices. However, a routing protocol tailored for low power devices is still missing in the library (or even one written in the Rust programming language). In this project, an implementation of the Routing Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks (RPL) will be added to the smoltcp library. This protocol is designed for Low-Power wireless networks that are generally susceptible to packet loss. By adding this protocol to smoltcp, we get closer to a network stack that is safer to use for the Internet of Things (IoT).
