Sense in the City
Sense in the city is a lightweight experimentation platform for wireless sensor networks in development. The main objective of this platform is to be easily transferable and deployable on the field. It allows a simplified deployment of the code running on the sensors and the collection of logs generated by the instrumentation of the code on a centralized database. In the early stage of the platform, the sensors are powered by small PCs, e.g. Raspberry Pis, but we are investigating the integration of energy harvesting capabilities such as solar panels.
Extention of the FIT IoT Lab Equipex in Tech La Doua Campus
This testbed is located in an experimentation room which belongs to the CITI laboratory and the Telecommunications Department of INSA Lyon, Villeurbanne. The target usages of this room are quite diverse: practical works with students, robots/drones testing, wireless sensor networks experimentation, Wi-Fi security evaluation, services deployment, etc. During an experimentation, this room could be shared with others practical works. Basically, we claim that this room is useful to observe the behavior of nodes with this dense interactivity. 18 M3 open nodes, 11 A8 nodes and 12 mobile on robots are available for experimentation.
