Abstract

The goal of this project was to design and build a wireless sensor network. Following an exploration of personal area networks and mesh networking, a system was implemented to detect physical intrusion. To that end, our network employed sensor nodes equipped with motion sensors and accelerometers. The network communicated with a generic infrastructure, adaptable to future wireless sensor projects, which stored sensor data in a database. Also included was a user interface to monitor the status of the entire system.
