In my earlier post, I had requested for information regarding the drivers for Wireless sensor network( WSN) in Labview. I was successfully able to configure my WSN using Labview. thanks to all for the support and help.
However I have a new querry now. I have developed a WSN testbed with more than 1 mote and more than 1 sensor. all the motes are spread out and they communicate with the base mote. the base mote is connected to the gateway and the gateway is connected to the PC where labview and moteview are installed.
Now I need to confure the motes ( ie load a software on the mote which is not connected to the PC) . Is it possible with labview ?
I mean does labview support this kind of a structure .? Say for ex i have a mote with id = 10 and that mote is one hope away from the base mote ? can i still configure that mote remotely ?
When you say "load the software on the mote" do you mean actually reflashing the firmware on the sensor? If so, there is currently no functionality for this in the Crossbow driver. LabVIEW is certainly capable of doing this, but in order to get the functionality, you may have to program it yourself. The Crossbow driver source code is available to view and using the programming documentation from Crossbow you could make modifications to the driver for your own use.
Thanks for the prompt reply .. I would also like to know that can this be done with the existing motes , sensors and gateway devices. ie MTS310 , MIB510 which I have or I will be requiring new motes and sensors, if yes what mote and sensor do I need to purchase.
I can't confirm exactly which models will work with the over-the-air programming. You might have better luck getting support from the manufacturor themselves, Crossbow. I would, however, be happy to help you with an other issues regarding the Crossbow driver for LabVIEW.
