Conference presentation: Arduino-based Wireless Sensor Network

Last week, I presented an article on the development of an Arduino-based wireless sensor network implementation at the AMBIENT 2012 conference in Barcelona. The conference was organised by IARIA, a non-for-profit, non-government organization that aims to promote scientific and industrial interchanges between scientific, academic and industrial researchers.

The presentation and the article are available for download.

Abstract—The paper presents an Arduino-based wireless sensor network to monitor parking lots using a non-standard low-power energy-balanced system. The event-driven routing protocol follows the hierarchical clustering philosophy. Energy is saved by minimising the number of transmissions needed to forward information to the base station. The smart sensor platform is build using the popular Arduino development platform, Sharp IR distance sensors and nRF24 low-power radio modules. Our practical results show that this platform is easy to use, but not the most appropriate platform to develop low-power wireless sensor network applications.

Keywords: Wireless Sensor Network (WSN); Smart Parking Application; Clustering; Arduino; nRF24.

The source code will be available on Google Code in the near future.

    Arduino as product is definitely weak for low-power. There are many derivatives that do much better though. I personally use panstamps, and that device could send temperature and pressure for about 3 months on a single AA NiMH cell charge …
