Abstract:

This effort developed power aware technologies and implemented an acoustic sensor network capable of performing audio direction finding. Strong ARM based acoustic sensor nodes were built and demonstrated at the Army Research Laboratorys Aberdeen MD test Facility in which they performed Line of Bearing measurements. Web based tools were developed to help Strong ARM developers evaluate the power consumption of these systems. Wireless protocols were also developed to optimize the power efficiency of the sensor network. An API framework was developed, in addition to a simulator that allows the end-user to measure and improve the power-awareness of data-gathering microsensor networks. This tool set allows a designer to develop and optimize protocols and algorithms in simulation, then rapidly transfer the design to the sensor hardware.
