1400-1630: Single-Chip Mote Tutorial (Dr. Filip Maksimovic, Inria, Jacob Louie, Portland State University)

  • abstract: We hope that attendees of the workshop are inspired to investigate both challenges and potential applications of crystal-free networking as a new frontier in wireless communications.presentations and posters specific to the Single Chip Micro Mote, a crystal-free wireless device that, with initial calibration, is capable of 802.15.4 compatible time synchronized channel hopping mesh networking. A short hands-on tutorial will be held to show the basic operation of the chip, from “Hello World” over a wired serial link to “Hello World” over a network. Later, the chip’s networking capabilities will be shown in a short demonstration session.
  • Details at Tutorial!
