Takeaways, Post-Workshop Activities, Developer Wiki

During the workshop, attendees will not only explore the capabilities of the GINA mote as a standalone wireless inertial platform (using pre-compiled firmware), but will also view advanced demos (an OpenWSN IPv6-enabled network, and connection of different sensors through the expansion port).

All of the firmware which will be presented is open-source, enabling further exploration on your own after the workshop. Upon completion of the workshop, attendees will be able to demonstrate wireless network-to-PC terminal communications and applications from built-in GINA sensors (accelerometer/gyro/magnetometer/temperature) to a provided USB radio dongle attached to their PC. PC-based application demonstration software will be provided.

After returning to their own laboratories, attendees will be able to use the provided GINA daughterboard (I/O expansion from GINA processor) to add their own sensors for initial WSN applications development and demonstration. Networking protocol stack updates (as well as user customizations) can be downloaded to GINA as open-source standards and corporate extensions evolve.
