Implementation of a Wireless Sensor Network for Electric Light Bulb Management Using IPv6




Domotics, WSN, 6LoWPAN, TinyOS, IEEE 802 15.4.5


In this study the results of the implementation of the wireless sensor network prototype, to manage the luminaires in homes are presented, using Iris sensors nodes, designed to work with battery for long periods of time and with limited processing capabilities. The nodes use 6LoWPAN addresses. The address conversion to IPv6 is done by a gateway. The luminaires are managed using devices connected to IPv6 network, with Android operating system. The correct functioning of the prototype is demonstrated by validating the functionalities of the management system implemented.
