NetEye



Overview:
NetEye is a wireless sensor network experimental facility deployed in State hall building at Wayne state University. NetEye has 130 telosb sensor nodes connected through USB to 15 Dell Vostro 1400 laptops. The laptops are connected through wired ethernet. NetEye provides a public, permanent testbed for development and testing of sensor network applications via an intuitive web-based interface. Registered users can upload executables, associate those executables with motes to create a job, and schedule the job to be run on NetEye.NetEye will facilitate research in sensor network programming environments, communication protocols, system design, and applications.

Hardware:
We have deployed 130 Telosb sensor "motes", which consist of an TI MSP430 processor running at 8MHz, 10KB of RAM, 1Mbit of Flash memory and a Chipcon CC2420 radio operating at 2.4GHz. Each node includes sensors for light. The motes are attached to the Dell Vostro laptops. There are 15 laptops to which 6-12 motes connected according to the design. Each mote is powered from the laptop (rather than batteries) and all the laptops are connected to the departmental Ethernet, which facilitates direct capture of data and uploading of new programs. The Ethernet connection is used as a debugging and reprogramming feature only, as nodes will generally communicate via radio.
Software:
Nodes run the TinyOS-2.0.2 operating system and are programmed in the NesC programming language, a component-oriented variant of C. The laptops and the server run on unix. MySql is used for the backend and PHP is used for the frontend web programming.
