Introduction l.jpg

  • TinyOS Very small “operating system” for sensor networks. (core OS 396 bytes).

  • Follows Component-oriented architecture.

  • It follows Concurrency based model on tasks and events.

  • nesC is an extension to C.

  • nesC follows the concurrency model so all the data races are avoided.

  • The cricket software constrains various issues like timing, accuracy etc.

Tiny OS

  • An “Operating system” for wireless embedded sensor networks.

  • Actually a set of software components that can be “wired” together into a single binary which is run on the motes.

  • Minimal OS functions

    • 2 threads of execution: tasks and hardware event handlers

    • No memory management

  • Main Ideology


    • Sleep as often as possible to save power

    • High concurrency, interrupt driven (no polling)

    Visualizing configurations






    • Connect configurations:

      configuration app { }

      implementation {

      uses c1, c2, c3;

      c1 -> c2; // implicit interface set.

      c2.out -> c3.triangle;

      c3 <- c2.side;


    • Partial configurations:

      component c2c3 {

      provides interface triangle t1;


      implementation {

      uses c2, c3;

      t1 -> c2.in;

      c2.out -> c3.triangle;

      c3 <- c2.side;


    My aim l.jpg
    My Aim

    • As in the cricket system all the processing done in the PDA attached to the cricket mote, I wanted to do processing at the base station.

    • For using the cricket RF for dual system I have to make the changes in the cricket program.

    • The base station contains the cricket mote attached with base station.

    • Check the different application running on the cricket mote.

    • Work done

      • Add storage in flash.

      • Temp adjustment.

      • Add units to all outputs but report.

      • Add setting of units.

      • Disable RS-232 depending of the test switch position on beacons .

      • Error codes.

      • Add coord.. to msg beacon.

      • Temp to msg beacon.

    • Work remaining.

      • Time consideration.

      • Data transmission using cricket RF.

    Times consideration l.jpg
    Times consideration

    • In cricket

      • TIMER_OFFSET 550us

      • MAX_ALLOWED_TIMER_VAL 45000us


      • DESYNC_DELAY 500us

      • MAX_US_TRAVEL_TIME 53000 us


        Total time taken in Total calculation = 47ms.

  • Time factors to be added.




  • Cricket program problems l.jpg
    Cricket program Problems

    • The program that I download from the MIT project is not working well. (Actually there is no simulator tools like TinyViz for running this cricket program on PC)

    • Some components in the program are missing.

    • It is not generating the documents.

    • Because we have to use only the cricket unit for transmission of message we have to make arrange the time that is taken in different operation.

    • We have to also test the application provided by the cricket.
