OKGems Project Status Report

Period: 1Q11

I. Major accomplishments

  • Built a sensor network testbed at University of Florida
  • Recreated software package (virtual machine image) from the previous version at OSU to UF
  • Enhance robotics testbed to support multiple sessions

A. Milestones achieved

  • OKGEMS: Enhance iGems with Hyper-V server to support multiple sessions and simple sensor-actuator networks integrating sensors and robots.
    • Done

B. Deliverables made

  • Internal server setup is up for testing.

II. Description of work performed during last quarter

  • Summary of accomplishments related to OKGems:
