Joint work with the Dust Networks product group at Linear Technology.
SmartMesh IP is the latest protocol stack from the Linear Technology’s Dust Networks product group. A descendant of long-standing ultra-low power and ultra-high reliability such as WirelessHART, the SmartMesh IP protocol stack combines the industrial performance of IEEE802.15.4e with the ease-of-use of IPv6.
The SmartMesh IP protocol stack runs on Linear Technology/Dust Networks’ latest silicon, which makes it the lowest-power solution on the market.
The Internet of Things is becoming a reality, but it’s still hard to build a real end-to-end solution. The goal of the DustCloud project (www.dustcloud.org) is to provide a set of open-source tools to build a complete IoT solution: from programming low-power sensors, to presenting a web interface, to interacting with popular services on the Internet. This ecosystem is built around SmartMesh networks, the de-facto highly reliable low-power wireless mesh networking solution.
It features the following projects:
- On-Chip SDK, allowing you to write your own application on a SmartMesh IP mote.
- SmartMesh SDK, a Python library to interact with the serial API of SmartMesh devices.
- DustLink, a web interface to your SmartMesh network.
- C Library, a C library to interact with the serial API of SmartMesh devices.
