The BTnut system software 1.8 has been released and is available for download here. The up-to-date snapshot contains bugfixes as well as several new application and libraries.
A major update to the BTnode Tutorial featuring new chapters on sensors, the CC1000 radio and for the first time, an overview of the BTnut OS core is also available. It can be downloaded here.
If you are attending EWSN in Delft next week, be sure to drop in and visit the BTnode tutorial on Monday morning.
The tutorial consists of an introductory part where we introduce basic concepts of embedded wireless sensor network platforms (mote class devices) as well as a hand-on section. The introduction will give a brief overview of the BTnode platform, it’s hardware architecture, the BTnut system software as well as Bluetooth networking. It will then proceed to the practical part where you get to know the development tools and first hands-on experience by downloading a demo application onto a BTnode and connecting to other Bluetooth devices. The lecturer will then coach you through the creation of a simple multihop sensor data gathering application based on Bluetooth Scatternets. The tutorial will conclude by demonstrating and experimenting with different methods of profiling and debugging of sensor network applications.
