Abstract

In this paper, we present : a flexible, compact, easy-to-program, and low-power WSN platform. Developed from scratch and including a node, a basic communication protocol, and a debugging toolkit, it assists in a user-friendly rapid application development. Our analysis shows that nodes are 67% smaller than BTnodes, have five times more sensors than Mica2Dot and consume 72% less energy than the state-of-the-art TelosB mote in sleep mode.
