This paper describes the wireless sensor networking testbed built at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory. The testbed has been used to address a wealth of exciting research challenges. Performance evaluations have been carried out with short-range wireless communication technologies, which are highly relevant for sensor networking such as IEEE(More)
We present a novel power-efficient wireless sensor network for continuously monitoring and analyzing seismic vibrations with sensor nodes and forwarding the retrieved information with low-cost relay nodes to backend applications. The applied vibration sensing algorithms are derived from the DIN 4150–3 standard. All nodes in the network are(More)
Increasing heat dissipation density is becoming a limiting factor in air-cooled data centers. The main control objective in data center thermal management is to keep the temperature of all the data processing equipment below a certain threshold and at the same time maximize the energy efficiency of the system. Existing work in this field does not take into(More)
The kinetic energy distribution of ground state muonic hydrogen atoms mup(1S) is determined from time-of-flight spectra measured at 4, 16, and 64 hPa H2 room-temperature gas. A 0.9 keV component is discovered and attributed to radiationless deexcitation of long-lived mu p(2S) atoms in collisions with H2 molecules. The analysis reveals a relative population(More)
To enable new context-aware applications and services in future communication systems, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are required to capture the context surrounding the service user and service related objects. This paper introduces a novel configurable architecture for a WSN system that is able to deliver context information from the sensors to the user(More)
