5 nodes

1 gateway and 4 sensor motes running. Having trouble deciphering code to get all sensors working. Have tried to use the XMesh samples as my base. Used the tutorial file (containing the temp only code) and expand it to include the other stuff. All the examples seem to be slightly different implementations though so figuring […]

Interaction Design for Augmented Objects

Making Ubicomp Approachable – workshop at UbiComp 2006. Sounds like an interesting workshop…. Topics include: * Specific applications and scenarios for early adoption of augmented objects * Physical embodiment vs. external augmentation. * Functional vs. thought provoking/playful augmentation. * Augmenting accessories vs. tools. * Augmentation related or unrelated to the original function of the object […]

a few teething issues

took delivery of 20 motes, a mix of 20 sensor boards, internet gateway and the new moteview software. Started by following the user guide and the tutorials and got simple temp readings out. When i started to try doing my own thing I started to struggle – here are a few reminders for me: you […]

SunSPOTWorld – About Us, Who are we?

Sun SPOT should be rolled out in May – looking forward to getting my hands on these. Here is an intro for information: Based on a 32 bit ARM CPU and an 11 channel 2.4GHz radio, Sun SPOT radically simplifies the process of developing wireless sensor and transducer applications. The platform enables developers to build […]

flocks of motes

Paper in IEEE Computer and course info for CSE 466: Software for Embedded Systems (Wi’06) a great demo of ad hoc networks and emergent behaviour. Each mote in the network sings a bird song. If another mote near by is also singing the same song it reinforces that tune. If they all sing the same […]

WSN application

MoteWorks Wireless Sensor Network Platform has been launched by Crossbow – this should mean out the box configuration of wireless sensor networks (given the apps that ship with it and those that can be used as plugins…) Watch this space… will report more when I have installed and played with it.

WSN products, people and reports

Crossbow – we are using this product at Arup – the Mica2, Mica2 dot and more recently the Micaz. Gateways include the MIB510 (with USB adapter) and the MIB600 ethernet gateway. Sensor boards include the MTS300 and 310’s, the MTS420 and the MDA500. We also have the Moteworks software. Whilst not strictly WSN technology (but […]
