LONDON Sequoia Technology has signed a franchise agreement with Crossbow Technology, an end-to-end solutions supplier in the wireless sensor networking sector and a manufacturer of Smart Dust wireless sensors. Crossbow is also a major supplier of inertial sensor systems for aviation, land, and marine applications.
Smart networks employ smaller, smarter, wireless sensing devices and mesh networking platforms for medical, environmental, industrial monitoring and control, building automation, security and asset tracking applications.
Crossbow's open architecture, TinyOS-based platform enables highly intelligent multi-sensing devices to dynamically and reliably self-organise to efficiently capture and send detailed physical data anywhere, anytime.
Sequoia is offering smart wireless sensor development kits designed to provide customers with all of the basic tools needed to develop and prototype a wireless network running on TinyOS. The basic kit includes three mote processor boards, a base station and two sensor boards.
San Jose-based Crossbow was set up in 1995 and has shipped more than 500,000 of its Smart Dust and other advanced sensors to more than 1,000 customers.
