dc.description.abstract This research focuses on the design and implementation of a tool to speed-up the development and deployment of heterogeneous wireless sensor networks. The THAWS (Tyndall Heterogeneous Automated Wireless Sensors) tool can be used to quickly create and configure application-specific sensor networks, based on a list of application requirements and constraints. THAWS presents the user with a choice of options, in order to gain this information on the functionality of the network. With this information, THAWS uses code generation techniques to create the necessary code from pre-written templates and well-tested, optimized software modules from a library, which includes an implementation of novel plug-and-play sensor interface. These library modules can also be modified at the code generation stage. The application code and necessary library modules are then automatically compiled to form binary instruction files for each node in the network. The binary instruction files then wirelessly propagate through the network, and reprogram the nodes. This completes the task of targeting the wireless network towards a specific sensing application. THAWS is an adaptable tool that works with both homogeneous and heterogeneous networks built from wireless sensor nodes that have been developed in the Tyndall National Institute. Its advantage over traditional methods of WSN development is simplification of development. en
