Graphical User Interface of an Interactive System for Wireless Sensor Networks: Design and Development
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are utilized for ubiquitous and pervasive computing to detect contextual information as well as represent a new monitoring and control ability for applications in industries, transportation and health care. A user is able to gain the effective use of captured context by the sensor network. The WSN software application is an important tool to visualize the information for the different applications. This research provides how to design WSN software application for visual user interface and how to develop WSN system in order to use it in practice.
We apply a graphical user interface (GUI) to enhance the intuitiveness of the interactive system. Activity Theory (AT) helps WSN software application make user-centered design. WSN GUI application is implemented with Java Swing on TinyOS, an operating system for WSNs. Furthermore, Java Web Start and the web database support WSN system to provide the GUI software applications via the internet.
