This article focuses on a new type of wireless devices in the domain between RFIDs and sensor networks—Energy-Harvesting Active Networked Tags (EnHANTs). Future EnHANTs will be small, flexible, and self-powered devices that can be attached to objects that are traditionally not networked (e.g., books, furniture, toys, produce, and clothing). Therefore,(More)
Wireless sensor networks fuse data from a multiplicity of sensors of different modalities and spatiotemporal scales to provide information for reconnaissance, surveillance, and situational awareness in many defense applications. For decisions to be based on information returned by sensor networks it is crucial that such information be of sustained high(More)

As larger numbers of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) applications get deployed in our homes and offices, it is desirable to use the same network to run different applications. We present and analyze the problem of scheduling and supporting the execution of multiple heterogeneous applications on top of the same WSN. First, we establish that using the same MAC(More)
We present an open framework for the efficient deployment of heterogeneous wireless testbeds for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). The testbed architecture, which can be configured and optimized for each particular deployment, consists of a low-power wireless network (LPWN) of embedded devices, a backbone network, and a server back-end. Our framework, whose(More)
Energy Harvesting Active Networked Tags (EnHANTs) are a new class of devices in the domain between RFIDs and sensor networks. EnHANTs will be small, flexible, and energetically self-reliant. Their development is enabled by advances in ultra-low-power ultra-wideband (UWB) communications and in organic semiconductor-based energy harvesting materials. In this(More)
<i>Energy Harvesting Active Networked Tags (EnHANTs)</i> will be a new class of devices in the domain between RFIDs and sensor networks. Small, flexible, and energetically self-reliant, EnHANTs will be attached to objects that are traditionally not networked, such as books, furniture, toys, produce, and clothing.

With the convergence of ultra-low-power communications and energy-harvesting technologies, networking self-sustainable ubiquitous devices is becoming practical. Hence, we have been recently developing new devices referred to as Energy Harvesting Active Networked Tags (EnHANTs). These small, flexible, and energetically self-reliant tags can be seen as a new(More)
We present a complete framework to design and deploy adaptive low power wireless networks. The framework consists of Fennec Fox, a four-layer network protocol stack, and Swift Fox, a high-level programming language. At run-time, Fennec Fox dynamically reconfigures services running on the network protocol stack layers using a library of modules optimizing a(More)
