What is it?
WISENET stands for Wireless Sensor Network. This is a
senior Electrical Engineering design project at Bradley
University. The Student team has two members: David
Patnode, Joseph Dunne.
Development of Wisenet is done. Wisenet is completely operational
in its current state. Check out the Downloads
section to get the source and distribution files of Wisenet.
Wisenet is the first-prize winner of the 2003
Student Expo at Bradley University.

So what does it do?
In a nutshell, it's a system of battery-powered sensor modules (aka
motes using TinyOS)
that communicate with each other over a low-power RF link. They
observe humidity, light, and temperature data. They then transmit
this data to a gateway mote, which is connected to a PC.
The PC receives all of the environmental data and stores it in a
mySQL database. A user can then access this data via a web browser,
which connects to a web server which calls a web program to retrieve
and analyze the raw data.

section for files that describe the system in much more detail!
