1 Smarten it up

________________ Low-Power WSN Platform

Wireless Sensor Networks Recent technology advances in areas like computing, networking, sensing and wireless communication, now enable a new paradigm where objects and environments can interact in a seamlessly way to monitor and control environments. The time for smart objects in smart environments has come.

______________ Brief _________________

2.4GHz IEEE® 802.15.4 & 6LowPAN Compatible 2nd Generation MSP430(F2617) Widely Adopted Radio: CC2420 On-board Digital Sensors (x2) Up to 4x Analog Phidgets™ 52-pin Expansion Connector Embedded or External Antenna MicroUSB Connector

With the Z1 low-power wireless module, Zolertia launches the first public release of its WSN mote, its flagship product. The Z1 module is a general purpose development platform for wireless sensor networks (WSN) designed for researchers, developers, enthusiasts and hobbyists. It is a platform compatible with the successful Tmote™family motes with several enhancements that offers roughly a 2x performance in several aspects.

___________ Description ______________ Equipped with two on board digital sensors (accelerometer and temperature), it comes with everything a developer needs to start building smart networks from scratch. You can connect your applications directly to the Internet of Things (IoT) with IPv6. The Z1 module was devised keeping in mind:

Immersing your device in the IoT Personal healthcare monitoring Environmental monitoring Emergency detectors Safe and rescue devices Long-term unattended monitoring Power consumption monitoring Agricultural monitoring

Backwards compatibility with motes based on MSP430+CC2420 as well as support for some of the most currently employed open source O.S.’s/stacks by the WSN community, like TinyOS (current) or Contiki (soon). Maximum flexibility and expandability while improving low power consumption with most versatile and low power sensors and uC. ____________________________ Do you need a custom solution?
