1 Developing a WSN application using Crossbow devices and software Anil Karamchandani

2 Agenda  Introduction to Crossbow and Moteworks  Description of Moteworks Platform  Overview of Crossbow wireless sensor equipments  Demo

3 Introduction to Crossbow and Moteworks  Crossbow was started in 1995 and was involved in the software and hardware aspects to develop tools for wireless sensors  Crossbow was one of the first suppliers of the Berkeley-style MICA motes  After the invention of MICA motes their other products included the MICA2 (868/916 MHz) and MICAz (2.4 GHz) motes, and the Intel- designed IMOTE2  In the software design platform, Crossbow created MoteWorks for all its hardware application

4 Introduction to Crossbow and Moteworks  Key Features of MoteWorks  Supports all Crossbow MICA and IRIS series Mote hardware and sensor boards  MoteView: Rich interface for visualization and analysis of sensor data streams  MoteConfig: Simple graphical interface to program flash and configure firmware images  XServe: Powerful utilities for data logging, parsing, conversions, and alerts  Cygwin: Command line shell and development environment  Programmers Notepad: Rich text editor and compilation front-end

5 Description of Moteworks Platform

6 Overview of Crossbow wireless sensor equipments  Sensor Data Acquisition Boards  Processor/Radio Platforms or “Motes”  Gateways and Network Interfaces

7 Sensor Data Acquisition Boards

8 MTS 310 Sensor

9 Processor/Radio Platforms or “Motes”

10 MICA 2 Mote

11 Gateways and Network Interfaces

12 MIB 510

13 Project Demo  Objective : To develop a simple sensing application (MyApp_Sensor) that samples the temperature on a sensor board and sends the message packet over a RS- 232 serial connection  Tools Utilized: MICA2 Mote: Standard edition of MICA2 One Sensor or Data acquisition board: MTS 310 One Gateway/Programming board: MIB510/MIB 520 A Windows PC with MoteWorks platform installed

14 Project Demo – Configuration and Procedure for developing a sensor application

15 Project – Demo  Within the MoteWorks framework a minimum of five files will be placed in any application’s directory: MakeFile MakeFile.component Application Configuration written in nesc Application module written in nesc Readme (optional)

16 Project Demo - Steps  Use Programmer’s Notepad  Compile: Select Tools > make mica2  If successful we get “writing TOS image” in output  Load Program: Select Tools>shell and type in make mica2 reinstall mib510,com1 or Use MoteConfig  Output: xserve –device=COM1  (* Configure MakeXbowLocal file according to application and hardware need such as frequency, power, channel, port number etc. before following these steps )
