Design and research of a universal & portable WSCN node configure instrument based on WinCE platformAuthor(s): Feng Yao, Yihuai Wang
Wireless sensor and controller network node is an important component in Internet of Things as well as its design plays an important role in Internet of product development. To achieve and configure the signal strength, address, product information of WSCN node in the process of development, production, installation and maintenance is indispensable. In view of obtaining WSCN node basic information and configure instrument are rare, based on in-depth analysis of WSCN node’s signal strength, address configuration, product attributes and other technologies, use of embedded software and hardware components of the design ideology, a scheme and implementation method about touchable and portable WSCN node configure instrument based on WinCE platform is advanced. Freescale’s ARM Cortex-M0+ core KW01-Zigbee chip, which is officially released in 2014, work as the core of WSCN node’s communication and the software framework is built on MQXLite-RTOS followed by the basic principles of embedded software engineering, which make the system have good portability and reusability. Action shows, the system is a new WSCN node configure instrument because of its steady communication ability, accurate and reliable data, good controllability, convenient use, which will be a good reference for the other instrument’s development.
