Project Title: Web-Based Testbed for Wireless Sensor Networks
Semester: 3 2010
Committe Chair: Dr. Dulal Kar
Committee Member 1: Dr. Ahmed Mahdy
Committee Member 2: Dr. Hongyu Guo
Project Description: The ability of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) to monitor and capture real time environmental data invites its use in several application domains ranging from the military to agriculture. Consequently there is a lot of academic and industrial research happening in this field. In order to effectively support this extensive research, there is a need for WSN testbed that provides a platform for experimentation and subsequently supports the development of new WSN services. The Web-based Wireless Sensor Network Testbed, Scibed, is an experimental testbed intended to provide an infrastructure for deploying and testing sensor network applications. The testbed will allow authorized users to reprogram a deployed network, read execution results, and query data from the database. Users will be able to access the testbed locally through the Web interface. The operations of the testbed are supported by a group of micaz sensor motes, which run on TinyOS operating system to communicate wirelessly.
