Exercise and Labs
Most of the Lab/Exercise work will be carried out using Crossbow-mica2
a program to Blink
LEDs using plan C
a program to Blink
LEDs using TinyOS/NesC and
- Use following command to make sure you have
- sudo apt‐get
TinyOS using these
instructions. However install tinyos-2.1.0 using Synaptic Package Manager
instead terminal commands. Note that we have hardy distribution
installed. Furthermore, you have to use settings
->repositories->third-party-software in order to add
- Check that you have installed everything properly
and have right environment variables using
- In case tinyos environment variables are not set.
Then create a file tinyos.sh in /etc/profile.d/ and add them there
manually. They are described here.
Make sure that your tinyos.sh is executable and you have restarted your
Ubuntu after creating it.
- Go to /opt/tinyos-2.x/apps/Blink and try to run make mica2
- Copy the exe you have created to the mote-mica2
- Change the application to know it better and
understand the text of first
- In case you have time and will then look at the next tutorial.
|Getting familiar with
class-file format and bytecode instruction set
- Aim is to get familaries with class file format of
Java. Please look at the chaper-4
for Java specification
- Install NetBeans on your
Ubuntu using Synaptic package manager
- Use SVN
from NetBeans (or on terminal) to get TakaTuka (create
new folder with named TakaTuka). The SVN URL is
- Open pc-side-code project in NetBeans it will be
under TakaTuka/pc-side-code folder
- Use TakaTuka class file reader
(takatuka.classreader.logic.StartMe) to read HelloWorld1.class
- See its output in the output folder "HelloWorld1.txt" and also see class
file using "javap -c HelloWorld1"
- Do some experiments. Change HelloWorld1.java and
check the class file again using above mentioned two methods.
- Try to generate and observing working of Java
instructions invokevirtual, invokestatic, invokespecial, getfield,
setfield etc. See chapter-6 of Java specification for explaination of
- Try to generate global constant pool using
takatuka.optimizer.cpGlobalization.logic.StartMeGlob and see that it
has a single constant pool in 1.txt file
|Write a program to Blink
LEDs using TakaTuka
|Write a program to send
and receive packets using TakaTuka
|Write a program using
TakaTuka, that displays on PC the number of neighbors active around a
base-node. Each node can switched On or Off at any time.
