Problem Statement

By tyoung23 on April 28, 2017 in Project

The Danforth Campus of Washington University in St. Louis spans 169 acres. The distance from the eastern-most building (Green Hall) and the western-most building (Athletic Complex), is roughly 1.26km. Furthermore, the majority of students live in university housing, ranging from 0.8km to 1.1km aw...

Objectives

By tyoung23 on April 28, 2017 in Project

The objectives of our bike sharing program using wireless sensor networks are as follows: We are designing a prototype to model a bike sharing program using a wireless sensor network. The model will consist of two nodes that each communicate its state and relative location to the nearest of two g...

Methods

There are four parts to our wireless sensor network. Sensor nodes, also known as motes in North America, are nodes capable of collecting and processing sensory information. In our wireless sensor network, sensor nodes are also able to communicate with other connected nodes in the network. We plan...

Bike Nodes When testing bike nodes, we coded the bike node to send the data directly to the base station. Bike nodes are able to send sensory data to the base station. When multiple bike nodes are incorporated, the base station is able to identify the presence of each node by each nodes identiļ¬ca...

Discussion

Overall, our prototype only serves as a preliminary model for what could eventually be implemented on a college campus. There are several aspects of this prototype that can be improved upon further testing and evaluation. Bike Nodes The prototype we designed was not physically implemented on a bi...
