Development

Mote Runner:

Sensor Boards / Radiation

This is the development section of the Waspmote Mote Runner platform. You can navigate through the examples with the left bar.

If you actually want to see examples about the original Waspmote platform, please go its specific development section.

» MR-RB 01: Reading Radiation

This example shows how to measure radiation in uSv/h during a specific time.

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x Radiation board
1 x Geiger tube

Notes

* Remember to connect the battery to Waspmote for proper operation.
* The connection of the sensor is described in the Radiation technical guide.
* When turning on the temperature sensor you will be powering all the low consumption group sensors. See the Radiation board technical guide for more information.
* Logger, Common and Radiation assemblies must be loaded in the mote.
* Please note that the output is in hexadecimal.
* Please note that Float.toLong() method has been used with a precission of 2 decimals. For example, a 3413 output in decimal base means 34.13. For more information of Float class, see http://localhost:5000/gac/saguaro-system-11.3.htm?fqn=r:com.ibm.saguaro.system.Float
* To compile this example: mrc --assembly=radp-1.0 --system=waspmote --ref=logger-#.# --ref=/common-1.0 --ref=/radiation-1.0 RadiationExample.java
