TinyNode: A Comprehensive Platform for Wireless Sensor Network Applications
We introduce the TinyNode platform for wireless sensor networks. Supporting both research and industrial deployments, the platform offers communication ranges that exceed current platforms by a factor of 3 to 5, while consuming similar energy. It comes with a rich, practical set of hardware extensions and full TinyOS support. We describe the design choices of the TinyNode, the accompanying hardware modules, and the MAC layer implementation.
