摘要：We present, Sprouts, a modern Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) platform that utilizes unique service-oriented sensors with an energy-aware architecture. Serviceable sensors allow for the rapid conception of a wide spectrum of applications; efficiently shortening the time gap between design and deployment. The Sprouts platform is the result of an industry related research at Queen’s University, and has successfully attracted some of the biggest industrial companies in Canada including Oil & Gas mining, steel production, and Power Grid monitoring.
We also describe the deployment of the Sprouts platform to monitor the health conditions of the vibration screens and shovel teeth used by Syncrude in the oil sands of Canada. Previous to WSN, wired sensing solutions have been attempted for this project, but failed to sustain integrity in the harsh conditions imposed by the environment. A complete system was developed at Queen’s University Telecommunications Research Lab (TRL) and successfully realized on a miniature working lab model.
