SeeMote: In-Situ Visualization and Logging Device for Wireless Sensor Networks
In this paper we address three challenges that are present when building and analyzing wireless sensor networks (WSN) as part of ubiquitous computing environment: the need for an in-situ user interface, a data logger, and a power consumption meter. Solutions for the above have been presented using laptops, personal digital assistants (PDA), onboard flash memory chips of limited size (usually 1MB), and laboratory test equipment. All of them have a good utility for the right applications. However, considering a certain variety of WSNs, where size, battery life, and cost are crucial, none of the above solutions is satisfactory. In this paper we present a compact, lightweight, low power, and low cost multimodal sensor module SeeMote that meets the stated challenges, and is compatible with the popular MICAz mote. Our module has the following components: (1) a graphical user interface component that combines a color liquid crystal display (LCD) and 5-way buttons, (2) a power meter component...
