Dr. Bernd Burgstaller and his team in Korea has finished the implementation of TinyVM for the Atmega128 microcontroller, which is used in Mica2 and successor motes. The new implementation of TinyVM allows inplace execution of compressed bytecode.
Selvakennedy has provided more details on the WSN networking projects. In particular, there are now T-Ant Simulators for Linux and Windows available for download.
Welcome to our completely restructured website of the WSN Initiative at the University of Sydney, School of IT. Most notably, we have changed the layout and design completely, adding a standard navigation menu to each page, as well as a pathway display, so that you always know where you are and what else you can access. We also reworked the content in large parts, adding more project information and giving more background on our different research areas and our research platform, the Sun SPOT sensor nodes. Enjoy!
Our Undergraduate student Quincy Tse (supervised by Uwe Roehm) has integrated the resource-awareness framework and the resource-aware clustering algorithm into SSDQP, out Sun SPOT distributed query processor. The description of the project can be found here.
Our Master by Coursework (Research Track) Student Duc Nhan Phung (supervised by Uwe Roehm and Mohamed Gaber) has extended its resource-aware clustering protocol for SunSPOTs to a distributed version. The description of the project can be found here.
Our Master by Coursework (Research Track) Student Karel Herink (supervised by Uwe Roehm and Mohamed Gaber) has compared the performance of centralized and in-network computing under various deployment conditions. The software and the description of the project can be found here.
Our Master by Coursework (Research Track) Student Duc Nhan Phung
(supervised by Uwe Roehm

has implemented novel data processing techniques for SUN Spots that are
resource-aware. The software and the description of the project can be
Our undergraduate students Kim Thanh Nguyen and Parampal Pooni
(supervised by S. Selvadurai) have written a multihop system for monitoring a building.
A graphical user interface was implemented
and JSim was used to simulate the system. The software and the

Sun SPOTs technology was presented at the Science in the City (1/8/06 - 3/8/06). Science in the City is Sydney's largest science event and provides high school students with a fantastic opportunity to get involved in science. The school of IT had a hands-on demonstration with Sun SPOTs. Thanks again for my team: Mr. Lang Hames, Mr. Darren Kwok, Mr. Ruchir Punjabi, and Dr. Bernd Burgstaller for dedicating their time for this great event.
Our hardware manager Mr. Remo Di Giovanni from the School of IT has
invented a casing for our 20 SUN bSPOTs. Remo has recycled old computer
mice. It is definitely a neat idea.
Our master by coursework student Mr. Yuhsiang Tsa
(supervised by U. Roehm)
has written a quickstart manual for the bSPOTs. This manual
comprises how to install the software and how to program bSPOT
hardware. The manual can be found here.
As part of the SOFT 1002 course our first year student Mr. Ruchir Punjabi (supervised by B. Scholz) has developed a small stack-oriented programming language for Sun SPOTs. It facilitates distributed computations in a network of Sun SPOTs. The language is related to Forth. It operates on a stack and has only one simple data type namely integers. It features recursively defined functions and allows communication between nodes in the network. Sources and a detailed description of the project can be found here.
Our master by courswork student Mrs. Ling Bai (supervised by B. Scholz) has written
simulator for datagrams. Now programs can be executed without
the SunSPOT hardware. It provides basic communication primitives
for datagrams. The software and description of the project can be found
