Title: NODES: A Novel System Design for Embedded Sensor Networks

Conference: Demo at IEEE Intl. Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN'2005)

Abstract: In this paper we present the RISE (RIverside SEnsor) platform, a novel system design for embedded sensors built around a System-on-Chip device interfaced with a large external storage memory in the form of off-the-shelf SD (Secure Digital) Card. We describe the hardware and software structure of RISE, which supports the standard TinyOS and NesC environment. We demonstrate that significant energy savings together with the additional benefits of reduced complexity and increased ease of use are achieved by adopting the sense and store methodology in which we transmit only the data of interest.
