Motes

The following motes will be deployed at the bao and ehs sites:

BAO and EHS Motes
dsm(id) mote sensor id (hex) sensor
bao (7) 1 23 Tsoil
20 Tsoil.x
26 Gsoil, HFT
28 Qsoil, ECHO
2f TPO1
2 22 Tsoil.10cm
23 Tsoil.20cm
28 Qsoil.10cm
29 Qsoil.20cm
17 56 Rsw.in
5b Rsw.out
67 Rpile.in
6a Rpile.out
3b Wetness
5 49 power
ehs(8) 4 21 Tsoil
22 Tsoil.x
24 Gsoil, HFT
2a Qsoil, ECHO
2f TP01
10 20 Tsoil.10cm
21 Tsoil.20cm
2a Qsoil.10cm
2b Qsoil.20cm
8 57 Rsw.in
59 Rsw.out
66 Rpile.in
6b Rpile.out
39 Wetness
2 49 power

 

After logging into a DSM, use the md or mote_dump commands to display the mote data.  The first parameter is the DSM id, either 7 for bao or 8 for ehs.  

md 7

This will show the currently reporting radio motes, as an ID, followed by binary jibberish.  If all motes at a site are reporting, you should see ID1, ID2 and ID17 at bao, and ID4, ID10 and ID8 at ehs, as shown n the above table. The power motes are not displayed with md or mote_dump.

Then to see the calibrated data for a given mote, enter its id after the DSM id (and a comma). For example, to display the regular soil mote on the bao:

md 7,1

The reporting rates are low, you may have to wait up to 10 seconds to see the data, or longer if there is radio interference.
