This project will integrate sensor nodes, robotic platforms and PCs into the ORCA control framework (Cluster D), and make them available for use by GENI researchers.

The sensor networks will be deployed in a laboratory setting and in a farmland setting. The sensor nodes will include various kinds of motes, such as Tmote, MicaZ, Telosb, Jennic nodes, and Micadot, and high-end nodes, such as Stargates and Imote2. The robotic platforms include Pioneer 3 DX/AT all-terrain autonomous robots, iRobot Create autonomous robots, and Surveyor robots with cameras and laser range finders.

A small cluster of PCs will be integrated for management of these heterogeneous resources.
