Texas Instruments Announces European Analog Design Contest

European Analog Design Contest (ADC) that tends to encourage system-level design within Universities has been announced by Texas Instruments. This is an opportunity for University students to show creativity and engineering skills whilst working on a design project using any…

Wireless Sensor Network to the Strange New World of Nanoscience

The advancement of integrated circuit technology and wireless communications has enabled the development of low cost sensor networks. However, there are constraints and technical issues that have allowed the network implementation to be restricted. Therefore, the possibilities of overcoming these…

Step-by-Step: Writing Contiki Programs

Hands –on simple instructions on how to program WSN motes on the Contiki operating system platform is illustrated here. This is one of the experiences I had while attending the CONET summer school of 2011 with the developers of Contiki.…

Wireless Sensor Networks with Contiki

The designers of operating systems for sensor nodes are often faced with the challenge of finding the right abstractions and lightweight mechanisms that offer a rich enough execution environment, while remaining within the system’s strict resource limitations. My hunt for…

3D Sensing and Communication in Hazardous Places

Node positioning and deployment in hazardous places have numerous set back. In this article I intend to show the challenges that are currently been experience for wireless sensor experts. The scope covered so far on node positioning has been two-dimensional…
