LOGICAL NEIGHBORHOODS RECEIVES BEST DEMO AWARD
AT SENSYS 2007
Logical Neighborhoods has been awarded as the best demonstration at the 5th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys), held in Sydney (Australia). The committee judged the Logical Neighborhood demo "the most technologically advanced, and truly showing the use of WSN technology".
The demonstration revolved around a road tunnel control scenario. It consisted of 20+ TMote Sky nodes acting as sensors gathering environmental readings, or as actuators controlling devices such as fans, lights, and traffic lights in the tunnel. We showcased how the system was able to automatically adapt to changing conditions, e.g., switching the traffic lights to red in case a traffic jam is recognized inside the tunnel. The scenario was inspired by the RUNES project.
