Wireless Sensor Laboratory

Wireless Sensor Laboratory
Here you may get an overview about the laboratory equipment and facility

Our laboratory is fully equipped with the tools and equipments allowing us to go from the hardware design and realization,  through the firmware programming and validation and finishing by the extensive testing and verification.

Some of the comercially available nodes that Wislab team is using are figured bellow. This set of devices contains IRIS (2,4 GHz), Mica2 (868 MHz), ekoNodes (eKo Pro series) - wireless devices from Memsic. In our project we often take advantage of Atmel WSN solutions such as: RZ Raven kit, RZ600 kit, Zigbit modules, JTAG ICE or mkII and many others.


For the study and verification of the communiaction system proposed, we take advantage of Daintree's Sensor Network Analyser, Metageek Chanalyser and Perytons Analyzer.


Developed platforms for wireless sensing applications

Most of the tools and development kits introduced above are mostly used for the technology verification and use-case studies. For the application-oriented system development we have already designed within reserach projects own wireless platforms that are briefly introduced bellow.
