We are happy to announce the first public release of the Re-Mote Testbed Framework featuring code developed in collaboration between DIKU and CIT. The Re-Mote Testbed Framework is a collection of modules for providing remote access to wireless sensor network testbeds. It includes a Java-based GUI client featuring real-time mote interaction using console windows and server-side software consisting of a MySQL database, mote control server, and mote host software.
The major contribution of this release is support for MicaZ and TMote Sky in addition to the original dig528-2 platform. It has
been successfully tested with the two widely used operating systems for WSN: TinyOS and Contiki. To get more information on
the Re-Mote Testbed Framework and the current release, please visit the project development website.
The CPS-CA’08 workshop will be held 11/JUN/2008 in Santorini Island (Greece), in conjunction with the 4th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS’08)
Although the IT transformation in the 20th century appeared revolutionary, a bigger change is probably yet to come. The term Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) has come to describe the research and technological effort that will ultimately efficiently allow interlinking the real world physical objects and cyberspace. Actually, a few other terms have been used to describe similar endeavors. The term “Internet of Things”, originally aiming at RFID technologies, is smoothly becoming synonymous for cyber-physical systems. The integration of physical processes and computing is not new. Embedded systems have been in place since a long time to denote systems that combine physical processes with computing. The revolution will come from massively networking embedded computing devices which will allow instrumenting the physical world with pervasive networks of sensor-rich, embedded computation.
