  21. Sensors • Sensors must be small and low-power in order to reduce energy and fit form factor • Packaging important • Robustness to weather needed

  22. Sensors • Example of sensors • Magnetic sensors • Honeywell’s HMC/HMR magnetometers • Photo sensors • Clairex: CL9P4L • Temperature sensors • Panasonic ERT-J1VR103J • Accelerometers • Analog Devices: ADXL202JE • Motion sensors • Advantaca’s MIR sensors • GPS • Cameras

  23. Actuators • Examples of Actuators • Motor (for mobile nodes) • LEDs • Buzzer • Emit chemical • In general, actuators may be powerful, large, and complicated • Can be outside of motes (e.g., turn on lights, send a vehicle into system, …) • What actuators should go on motes?

  24. Properties of Sensors (14) • Range • Example • HMC1053: +/-6 Gauss • Accuracy • Measure of error and uncertainty • Repeatability • HMC1002: 0.05% • Linearity • HMC1002: 0.1% (Best fit straight line +/- 1 Gauss)

  25. Sensors • Sensitivity • How output reflects input? • Efficiency • Ratio of the output power to the input power • Resolution • Temperature within ½ degree

  26. Sensors • Response time • How fast the output reaches a fraction of the expected signal level • Overshoot • How much does the output signal go beyond the expected signal level • Drift and stability • How the output signal varies slowly compared to time • Offset • The output when there is no input

  27. Sensors • Packaging • Example – HMC1053: 16-PIN LCC packaging • Property of the circuit • Load of the circuit • Power drain • Initialization Time (important when nodes are asleep and awakened dynamically when an event occurs)

  28. Sensors • Signal Processing • Process the sensor reading to make it useful to the application • Sensor fusion (heterogeneity possible) • False alarm processing (false positives and false negatives) • The complexity varies from a simple threshold algorithm to full-fledged signal processing and pattern recognition • New solutions needed on minimal capacity devices

  29. Sensors • Raw reading of an MIR sensor in a quiet environment • The beginning period represents some unknown noise, possibly due to the positioning of the sensor

  30. Sensors • Raw reading of an MIR sensor as a person walked by • The all-zero period is due to unreliable UART interface used to collect the reading and can be ignored.

  33. ADC 12 2 • Resolution • Sample Rate 10 2 8 2 Resolution V Temp 0-100 C Micro- Proc ADC SPI I2C Sensor

  34. ADC • MAX1245 • 8 channels of analog input • Can sample up to 100,000 samples per sec • Resolution of 12 bits • Interfaces with SPI and I2C buses • Can enter low power mode • Interface to Processor: processor issues commands to read channel • Interfaces to sensors

  35. ADC • Sample rate Too slow Nyquist Sampling Theorem

  36. Temperature Sensor • A22100 • Output voltage: 22.5mV/C over temperature range of -50C to 150C • Derive conversion equation (see spec sheet) • Example: for 5 V power supply • T = (V(out) – 1.375)/0.0225 • If V(out) = 1.94V then T = 25.1C 5V V(out) A22100 GND

  37. Other Sensors • Light • Add power and ground • Analog output voltage is proportional to incident light • May need an amp to detect full range • Accelerometer • Output voltage is proportional to acceleration and power V(s) • V(out) = V(s)/2 – (sensitivity * V(s)/5 * acceleration) • Sensitivity depends on particular accelerometer

  43. Sensor and Data Fusion • Data Fusion – combine data from multiple sources (not only sensors) • Sensor Fusion – combine data from multiple sensors

  44. Signatures • Objects/phenomena generate signatures • Type of energy (electromagnetic, acoustic, ultrasonic, seismic, etc. • Active or passive sensors • Affected by weather, clutter, countermeasures, etc.
