installation windows
Installation Windows:
  • Windows:
    • Simple Dos commands.
    • Uses Cygwin.
    • Motelist
      • Lists connected Tmote’s.
    • To compile an application:
      • cd / opt / moteiv / apps / Delta
      • make tmote
    • To program a Tmote:
      • make tmote reinstall,1
      • 1 sets the network address of the module.

trawler application
Trawler Application:

MOTECOM=serial@COM4:tmote java


  • TinyOS system, libraries, and applications are written in nesC.
  • nesC applications are built out of :
    • Components with well-defined, bidirectional interfaces.
  • nesC concurrency model:
    • tasks and hardware event handlers
    • detects data races at compile time.
blink application
Blink Application:
  • configuration Blink {}implementation {  components Main, BlinkM, SingleTimer, LedsC;  Main.StdControl -> BlinkM.StdControl;  Main.StdControl -> SingleTimer.StdControl;  BlinkM.Timer -> SingleTimer.Timer;  BlinkM.Leds -> LedsC;}
blink application1
Blink Application:
  • module BlinkM {  provides {    interface StdControl;  }  uses {    interface Timer;    interface Leds;  }}
blink application2
Blink Application:
  • implementation {  command result_t StdControl.init() {    call Leds.init();    return SUCCESS;  }  command result_t StdControl.start() {    return call Timer.start(TIMER_REPEAT, 1000) ;  }  command result_t StdControl.stop() {    return call Timer.stop();  }  event result_t Timer.fired()  {    call Leds.redToggle();    return SUCCESS;  }}
nesc documentation
nesC Documentation:

Component: Blink2

configuration Blink2

Blink2 is a basic application that toggles the LEDs on the mote on every clock interrupt. The clock interrupt is scheduled to occur every second. The initialization of the clock can be seen in the Blink2 initialization function, StdControl.start().
