NSensor – Wireless Sensor Network for Environmental Monitoring

P. J. Sousa, R. Tavares, P. Abreu, M. Teresa Restivo


This paper reports the development and integration of a wireless sensor network for environmental monitoring. The main goals of this system include modularity, low power consumption and ease of expansion. The system includes three main elements: sensor nodes, gateways and a server. Each sensor node can only connect to a gateway, resulting in a star network layout.  Data collected from the different sensor nodes is stored in a database within the server. A web-based user interface for this system was developed and made available online.
