Hi Nilanjan,

We suspect this is a problem with TOSBase when it's under high load, where 
"high load" means that data is received over the radio faster than can be 
transmitted at the UART baud rate. I know a few people have investigated the 
problem but can't really nail down the precise condition that causes the 
failure, so the issue remains.

One possible work-around you can try for Telos and Tmote platforms is to 
increase the default baud rate. I've just now typed up a web page describing 
how to do it:


If you have a go at that, please let me know if it solves or at least 
reduces the rate of failure of your TOSBase.

Thanks, best,
