This VI shows how to programmatically deploy WSN Application image to multiple WSN Nodes
National Instruments wireless sensor network (WSN) measurement nodes offer low-power, reliable operation for long-term, distributed deployments. With the LabVIEW Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) Module Pioneer, you can use graphical programming to customize the node’s behavior, adding intelligence to extend battery life; increase analog and digital input performance; perform local control, analysis, and data reduction; and interface with custom sensors. You can download LabVIEW WSN applications wirelessly to NI WSN measurement nodes, allowing seamless updates to deployed nodes.
When working with a large Wireless Sensor Network, one can reduce deployment time by programmatically uploading a WSN application image to multiple WSN nodes using the powerful WSN Host API. In specific, the implementation of WSN Deploy Firmware.vi helps deploy a WSN application image to all programmable WSN nodes registered to a programmable WSN Gateway cutting down the deployment time of large WSN test beds.
*Multiple WSN image deployment can only work if all programmable WSN nodes are the same model.
Attached is a project containing a sample VI which uses the WSN Deploy Firmware.vi to update all registered programmable WSN nodes.
