A plant-and-play wireless sensor network system for gate monitoring
—In this work, we present a practical plant-and-play wireless sensor network system for entry-exit monitoring. Our system is easily configurable and robust, making it feasible to be deployed in a wide range of entry-exit monitoring applications. At the core of our system lies a novel MAC protocol that is self-synchronizing. Notably, our MAC protocol allows the nodes to maintain a very low duty cycle, while also enabling quick synchronization of the nodes (when needed) for a consistent classification of entry or exit events. We have deployed this system for monitoring a faculty parking lot at our university and integrated it with an SMS notification system to provide information on the availability of parking spots on demand. We also present the parking lot occupancy trends obtained through this deployment, and discuss some of the reliability issues encountered.
