IAM Sensornet

From GumstixWiki



To produce sensor network testbed/infrastructure to support research in IAM. This will include both SUN Spots and Gumsense nodes - some "permanently" deployed - others used for specific projects/trials. iamsensornet description

Gumstix nodes

  • a set of 4 nodes with Linux Gumstix plus sensor set and small touchscreen LCD
  • initial set of 10 gumsense based systems with sensor set
  • "campaign" will build all available gumsense boards plus a few LCD standalone gums.
  • gumsense photos

Sensor toolkit

PIR will be on LCD-based gumstix (along with webcam eventually)

RFID - also destined for lcd gumstix



also available - CO2 and various light sensors

SUN Spots


is a development from gumsense as a standalone WSN node using msp430 and stack-structure for cards including interfaces for xbee radios and sensors. We intend to run TinyOS2 and/or Contiki on these. Once ported they could be used together with an ARM platform like the gumsense. Current build in progress is 20 pcbs.
