Telosb Sensor Network – Helpful in Many Different Applications

Posted on Updated on

Wireless sensor networks can be used in many different number of applications. It may seem easy to implement a wireless sensor network on paper though the reality is quite different; since implementing a wireless sensor network posses many unexpected challenges. In addition to which implementing a sensor network might provide different results from those derived theoretically. It is also possible that several routine protocols if and when tested fail to perform. Here a wireless sensor network is implemented using the Telosb sensor network.

A wireless sensor network is a network of devices that consist of one or more different kind of sensors connected together via wireless communication to monitor cooperatively different environment conditions. This includes the temperature, humidity, sound and more at different locations. A wireless sensor network is deployed in many different application including industrial applications. For example it is implemented in hazard detection application, and industrial applications to name a few. A wireless sensor network is also associated with the ability to sustain harsh environmental conditions. For example it has the ability to cope with nodes failure, communication failure and even heterogeneity of nodes. There are many challenges faced this wireless sensor networks like mobility of nodes, deployment, dynamic network topology and synchronization.  A node or a mote as far as a wireless sensor network is concerned consists of sensors, microcontroller, transceiver and batteries. There are special operating systems used and designed for wireless sensor networks. TinyOS is one of them. The communication protocol used for wireless sensor networks also vary though there are a few to choose from. There are also different kinds of interfaces that are used for programming and data transfer like USB and RS-232.

It was designed by the University of California, Berkeley by TinyOS developers. The Tmote Sky platform offers seamless vertical integration between the hardware and the TinyOS operating system. TinyOS is a small open source component based operating system also developed at UC Berkeley. TinyOS was specifically designed to support the networked sensor regime. TinyOS was in fact the first event driven operating system specifically made for wireless sensor networks. It was written in a variant of the C programming language named NesC. It is considered to as a component based operating system. The components are connected to each other by means of interfaces. It is possible to quickly program new applications using connected components with their interfaces. These are components of the highest level that implement protocols, hardware abstractions, data structures, services, etc. TinyOS is open source hence the programmes can combine and adapt the basic components that are really needed in the application and include it in the final executable file. Thus this reduces the amount of the mote memory required.

Wireless Sensor Mote Platform

Posted on

A wireless sensor network consists of spatially distributed autonomous sensors to monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as temperature, sound, vibration, pressure, motion or pollutants and to cooperatively pass their data through the network to a main location. The development of wireless sensor networks was motivated by military applications like battlefield surveillance; today such networks are being used in many industrial and consumer applications. This includes industrial process monitoring and control, machine health monitoring and so on. The wireless sensor network is build of nodes, from several hundreds to even thousands where each node is connected to one sensor.

MTM-CM5000-MSP – 77.00€

Each such sensor network node has typically several parts; a radio transceiver with an internal antenna or connection to an external antenna, a microcontroller, an electronic circuit for interfacing with the sensors and an energy source in the form of a battery or an embedded from of energy harvesting. A sensor node might vary in size from that of a shoebox down to the size of a grain. The mote function within the network and typically full-fill one of the two purposes. Either data-logging, processing sensor information from the environment or acting as a gateway in the adhoc wireless network formed by all the sensors to pass data back to a collection point.

The IEEE 802.15.4 protocol has been adopted as a communication standard for the low data rate, low power consumption and low cost Wireless Sensor Networks. This protocol is quite flexible for a wide range of applications if appropriate tuning of its parameters is carried out. Most of the mote platforms use this standard for communication between the motes. TelosB mote is IEEE 802.15.4 compliant and use 2405 to 2480 Mhz band for communication. TelosB mote boards are typically powered from an external battery pack containing two AA batteries.

Advanticsys has been in this field since 2009 and is quite the solution provider. They in fact specialize at Wireless Sensor Networks.

Humidity Monitoring Sensor

Posted on

Since humidity sensor senses, measures and reports the relative humidity in the air it needs to measure both the moisture (humidity) and the air temperature. Relative humidity is actually the ratio of actual moisture in the air to the highest amount of moisture that can be held at that air temperature. Thus the higher the temperature the more the water vapour it can hold. Humidity or dew sensors can use capacitive measurement which relies on electrical capacitance.  The ability of two nearby electrical conductors to create an electrical field between themselves is called the electrical capacity. As far as the sensor design is concerned it can be composed of two metal plates and contain a non conductive polymer film between them. When the moisture from the air collects on these two plates it causes the voltage to change. These voltage fluctuations are converted into digital readings showing the level of moisture in the air.

There are many different kinds of humidity sensors; they may vary in accuracy, operating temperature range, humidity range, supply voltage, packaging type and supply current.  The popular uses of a humidity sensor are quite surprisingly common. For example they can be used in monitoring and as a method of taking preventive measures in homes for people with illnesses that are affected by humidity. Their application includes usage in home heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC systems). Besides which they are immensely popular in offices, cards, museums, industrial spaces and greenhouses.

Advanticsys provide similar solutions and utilize equipment like the Telosb Sensors as a part of their solution. This provides good safety and peace of mind for all involved.

The  Research Area in wireless sensor networks include wireless communication, localization, calibration, time synchronization, routing, deployment and lifetime optimization. In addition to which it also includes signal processing, detection, storage and mobility.

Wireless Communication can be broken into three regions, namely connected, disconnected, and transitional.

There are many routing challenges faced which are described briefly below:

1. In real life, sensors are unable to detect or measure the event’s effect below certain threshold. So, diffusion curve has finite tail
>Lack of sensitivity of sensor device(s)
>Creates flat information region

2. Erroneous reading of the malfunctioning sensors
>Due to calibration error or obstacle
>Cause local maxima or minima

3. Environmental noise
