Tasks in this project

JSI joined the CREW project in July 2010, and complements the CREW platform with an outdoor wireless sensor network testbed based on a Versatile Sensor Node (VSN), which is a WSN platform with high processing capability, long-term autonomy and flexible radio. It supports a broad portfolio of sensors and actuators, while its modular approach allows adaptation to diverse application requirements. Furthermore, GRASS-RaPlaT, an open-source radio planning tool developed at Jozef Stefan Institute is made available. JSI contributes to all work packages in the project.
