Status update

Status Update

  • Project Concept: Laptop Anti-theft Device

  • Status Update (implementation):

    • Voltage incompatibility of RFID reader, as well as concerns with limited range of RFID

    • Using Zigbee protocol to communicate between t-motes

    • Achieved a satisfied level of sensitivity for device

  • Status Update (testing):

    • Tested varying degrees of movement

    • Tested range of Zigbee protocol


Experimentation plan

Experimentation plan

  • Metrics:

    • Range of T-motes

      • Sets distance at which we arm and

        disarm the t-mote

    • Degree of movement of accelerometer

      • Sets the degree movement to

        trigger off alarm

  • How to measure

    • Conducted 40 trials for each metric

      • Measured # times in which device is constantly being armed/disarmed for 5 seconds at a particular distance

      • Measured # times in which alarm is sounded at the various movements


Initial data

Almost every sudden movement would cause alarm to ring

Thief can steal laptop by moving it away slowly

Banging of lab table does not cause alarm to sound off most of the times

Device will be in disarm mode constantly if user within 1.5 feet

Device will likely be in arm mode constantly if user is at 16 feet from device

Initial data


Looking forward

Looking forward

  • Lessons learnt:

    • Subtleties in tinyOS,

      • Deluge library prevented buttons from working

      • Using genericComm instead of which hpluart to send packets

      • Using Tosmsg->strength instead of Tosmsg->lqi

  • What is next?

    • Receiving Tosmsg packets from PC

    • Setting and testing with different mote IDs

    • Analyze device for more appropriate sensitivities to movements and range
