On the design of a flexible gateway for Wireless Sensor Networks
2008 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The development of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) gateway is challenging for countries where limited infrastructures lead to frequent power shortages and network unreliability. In this paper we describe the design of a flexible gateway that collects data from WSN, stores them in a database and makes them available via wireless links. In the design of such device, low power, low-cost and flexibility must be taken into account. Our prototype is flexible as it can work as WiFi client, serve as WiFi access point and can connect to OLSR mesh networks. Based on low-cost hardware and on opensource software, it is suitable for being used in challenging environments.
