#What do I need?

In order to program and control Arduino and sunSPOT using mkSense/Library, you must first deploy mkSense/mac by executing the following steps:

Deploy mkSense/mac radio stack on motes

  • sunSPOT:
    • First inside file sunspot/sdk/multihop_common_source do:
      • ant jar-app
      • ant library
    • then inside file sunspot/sdk/spotlib_source do:
      • ant -do-jar-app
      • ant library

Then connect the sunSPOT motes you are going to use and do: ant flashlibrary

  • Arduino board:
    • place the XBeeRadio file in the libraries subdirectory of your default Arduino sketch directory.

Deploy mkSense/mac radio stack on the Controller

On the Controller (your PC) you can use as a Gate either a sunSPOT BaseStation or a XBee module. The deploying steps for each one are:

  • sunSPOT BaseStation Gate:

  • Providing you have done the four steps described above, connect the BaseStation to your PC and do ant flashlibrary

  • XBee Gate:

    • inside xbee/javaAPI folder do ant compile jar to create distributive.

#Using mkSense/Library

Since you deployed mkSense/mac you must do the following steps to be able to program and control the motes of your desire.

mkSense/Library on motes

  1. Deploy program created for sunSPOTs by doing: ant deploy -Dport=/path/to/port

  2. Deploy program created for Arduino board by placing lib.cpp and lib.h files in the libraries subdirectory of your default Arduino sketch directory, then upload to the Arduino board the sketch.pde file

mkSense/Library on the Controller

  • If sunSPOT BaseStation is used as Gate you should use the source provided at sunSPOT-Gate file. Do ant compile jar to create distributive and import it in your IDE. The basedir of your application should have the build.xml and build.properties file in order to run it. In build.properties file you define your main class and any additional distributives you use. Run your application by doing ant host-run -Dport=/path/to/basestationPort

  • If XBee module is used as Gate you should use the source provided at xbee-Gate file. Do ant compile jar to create distributive and import it in your IDE.
