The Wireless Sensor Networks Research Group is looking for researchers and developers who want to investigate using the Libelium mote and mesh router platforms. This group is a link between people with heterogeneous research interestsfor getting the most of wireless sensor networks improvements.
All the members of this group are concerned about the importance of open source projects when sharing and spreading knowledge. The open source concept applies to use open routing protocols for ensuring interoperability among networks and open monitoring and test platforms. On one hand, this kind of projects make it possible to join people from
all over the world working together and making faster developments due to the use of a common platform. On the other hand, open source philosophy makes technology affordable for developing countries.
Thus, people who has ideas but no resources can also research and contribute to the Community.
The main group activities are:
- Development of real WSN projects (in conjunction with other members)
- Articles and papers publications about the research work done (weekly update in the website)
- Conferences, meetings, workshops to coordinate the research
The group members can access to the current and upcoming (!) Libelium mote technology at special conditions.
