ScatterWeb, a distributed, heterogeneous platform for the ad-hoc deployment of sensor networks offers hardware together with open, fully documented software for the deployment of embedded sensor networks. Already low power by design, the sensor nodes offer additional energy conservation mechanisms and support energy efficient routing, such as, e.g.,(More)
In this paper we describe a method for localizing and tracking a mobile robot in the type of field used for RoboCup mid-size soccer robots. Each robot carries an omnidirectional camera which provides a 360 degree view of the robot’s surroundings. The only features that we use for localizing the robot are white lines present on the green carpet. These white(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are in a transition from research to real world applications. Robust and efficient hardware platforms are needed. These have to offer sufficient processing power and memory while retaining energy efficiency. In this technical report we present the newest ScatterWeb hardware platform that fits the needs of research and(More)

This article presents ScatterWeb, a distributed, heterogeneous platform for the ad-hoc deployment of sensor networks offering hardware and open, fully documented software for research and teaching in embedded sensor networks. ScatterWeb consists of sensor nodes and several gateways connecting the sensor network to other wired or wireless networks. Already(More)
In the natural sciences, research often relies on extensive manual investigation. Such methods can be error-prone and obviously don't scale well. The development of autonomous data acquisition systems such as Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has provided a method to significantly reduce manual work and, as such, has the potential to enable researchers to(More)
Our F180 team, the FU-Fighters, takes part for the sixth time in the RoboCup competition. This year, we have improved our omnidirectional robots in the following ways: we added a fourth wheel and a modified shooting device with a new magnet coil, we added Plug & Play components to the vision system, we use new color markers, Bluetooth communication modules,(More)
