Skomer Island 2007 deployment

Freie Universität Berlin, Oxford University, and Computational Science Laboratory at Microsoft Research (list of partners) developed a system to autonomously monitor animals and their environment. Combining Wireless Sensor Networks and custom software we are intelligently gathering data from remote locations, relaying it back for local storage and processing and allowing remote reconfiguration of the network by research scientists.

More information about the scientific goals of this project can be found on the dedicated Skomer Island Project Site.

This site was launched as a platform for sharing results of our hardware design and software development with the research community.

We are investigating novel ways of programming Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). Freie Universität Berlin designed and prototyped a Software Factory for WSNs that hides the complexity of software development for embedded systems. This Software Factory exposes a visual domain-specific modeling language and supports code generation for resource constrained devices. Find out more on the dedicated Flow Project Site.
