The Tyndall Mote is a technology platform for research activities in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). BEM is one of the major application areas as it has been demonstrated that energy effic iency savings of up to 15-20% are possible by using WSN technology in smart build ing applications . The current mote design offers a modular, flexible and stackable… (More)
Ad-hoc wireless networks offer significant potential benefits in military applications such as distributed wireless sensor networks. In such applications it is likely to be important for the wireless nodes to have low size, weight and power, and for the network to have sufficient capacity (bandwidth) and link reliability. Furthermore in a deployed system… (More)
By incorporating bit-manipulation routines into Fortran-77, it is now possible to manipulate bits or partial word operands without having to write assembly-coded subroutines. Because the routines are now acceptable to Fortran-77 compilers, the accessing code is now portable to other Fortran Machines.
