AmICA WSN platform


_____

Overview

Wireless sensor networks are the driving force behind many popular and interdisciplinary research areas, such as environmental monitoring, building automation, healthcare and assisted living applications. Requirements like compactness, high integration of sensors, flexibility, and power-efficiency are often very different and cannot be fulfilled by state-of-the-art node platforms at once.

We present AmICA: a flexible, compact, easy-to-program, and low-power WSN platform. Developed from scratch it includes:

* AmICA node
* AmICA node debugger node
* AmICA node protocol (wireless communication protocol)
* AmICA node boot loader
* AmICA node software development framework
* AmICA debugger toolkit AmICA_Node_Control
* AmICA bridge (PC java platform with database support)

The AmICA WSN platform assists in an user-friendly rapid application development. We invite you to join the AmICA project. Feel free to
download documentation and source code as well as our papers. Please do not hestiate to contact us, if you have any questions, if you want more detailed information or if you want to work with the AmICA system.
