  1. Puce    A Wireless Sensor Network Testbed for Environmental Surveillance

The testbed consists in WaspMote from Libelium. The main hardware characteristics of WaspMote board are summarized here.

The choice of WaspMote from Libelium was driven by these key features:

  1. PuceAvailability of many types of sensor board, see a list here

  2. PuceAvailability of adapted alternative power source: solar panels

  3. PuceAvailability of advanced interconnection gateways: Meshlium that provides in the same Linux-based box WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee/802.15.4, GPRS interfaces

  4. PuceIntegrated IDE and easy programming of the board in C++, see sample code here

  5. PuceEasy database functionalities, embedded in the Meshlium

  6. PuceClear documentation

Our testbed currently consists in:

  1. Puce5 WaspMote, 802.15.4 SMA 5dBi antenna (1mW, range of 500m)
