Hello RIOTers,
What is the current state of radio duty cycling in RIOT?
I know that radio drivers implement on and off functions for the chip, but
how do we make the best use of them?
​In order to reduce power consumption it will be necessary to duty cycle
the radio​

​For comparison, in
​Contiki there are multiple RDC drivers that can be switched​ between at
compile time, the most well-known is ContikiMAC [1]. Something similar
would be very useful in battery powered scenarios for RIOT.
