Managing Digi’s XBee radio modules requires using their X-CTU package to upload the correct firmware. In this post we explain how.
A mesh network is a way of setting up a communications system when there’s no fixed infrastructure available. They’re often used for communications in remote sites, and on sensor networks.
The XBee is a series of small radio modules that implement the Zigbee protocol and work well with Arduinos.
The first proto-shield has been assembled.
The parts have arrived for the ditch project.
The initial design for a sensor mote puts three temperature sensors together with an Arduino and short-range radio module.
Citizen Sensing’s first project is to perform environmental monitoring on a small scale with minimally-specification hardware.
In computer science, an actor system is a way of building programs that are very concurrent and very amenable to scheduling and management. The idea of an actor system goes back to the PhD work of Gul Agha. His actor model structures programs around a collection of simple agents called (unsurprisingly) actors. Each actor associates …
Welcome to Citizen Sensing. The eventual goal of this web site is to provide to information you need to get started with sensing and sensor networks., whether you’re a student, an educator, a researcher, or a citizen scientist. At the moment, however, this site is very much under construction, so please excuse our broken links …
