Project classification

In green our progress with Myriamodem networks made in 2014 is mentioned
There are a lot of possibilities with MyriaNed. We've differentiated these possibilities in the following classifications, corresponding with our fields of interest:
1.Consumption (durability)
2.Industry (process)
3.Social (care)
4.Building (protection)
5.Surrounding (experience)
6.Development (technical)

1. Consumption Projects (durability)

partner: TU/e - Smart Energy Buildings & Cities
more information:
purpose: MyriaNed as Smart Building Platform.
time frame: 2014Q1 - 2014Q4
2014: From the MyriaModem Edukit to a real life set-up. VMI-SEBC, eind opstelling.png
In several remarkable steps we received this target to present our goal: reducing energy waste in lighting large (office) rooms. Light is only present were needed, in the intensity you have chosen as seen on the presentation  SEBC, MyriaNed_Poster.pdf.
In between results were shown with demonstrations at the TNO-ESI symposium (week 38) and on the WOTS fair (week 40). In December shots were made to be presented on TV in January. After about 7 minutes in part 1 a short demonstration is given on
People are very interested after the demonstration of:
1) easy installation of the system
2) easy configuration and calibration
3) correct working of the calibration (after changing the light sensors) and feed forward implementation.
status: Prototype
The SEB&C project was finished with a high score. We were asked to give gast lectures on the TU/e in 2015.
partner: Fontys Hogescholen - Green logistics in agrobusiness
more information:
purpose: creating awareness of energy consumption in cool stores.
time frame: 2014Q1 - 2015Q1
2014: a sensorkit was made to be used by others than our company members. On the photo you see the system we delivered to the Fontys Hogescholen. With this system they are able to measure the energy (6x clamp meter) in parts of a cool store. Data with a timestamp is stored on an internal server for further analysis. The data can also be sent to an external server which allows the viewer to be used anywhere.

Energy Harvesting
- partner: Fontys Hogescholen (trainee)
purpose: based on wind energy, creating a Myriamodem network that functions uninterrupted for a whole year, including 3 full days of windlessness.
timeframe: 2014Q1 - 2014Q2
2014: the trainee finished his project with a good result. We continued the process by minimalising the PCB, adding a humidity/temperature sensor and printing the housing on our 3D printer. Six of them were made realizing a solid base of our MyriaModem network at out office.

- partner: Holst Institute
purpose: to make a full day MyriaNed communication possible with only indoor light
timeframe: 2012Q1 - 2012Q3

3. Social projects (care)

STiP (Living Light 2)
partner: NXT Generation (idea owners)

more information: nearly the same firmware was needed as in het Living Light project and new application software was made.
time frame: 2014Q4 - 2015Q1
status: Functional Model
partner: Devlab - Extreme Wireless Distributed Systems
purpose: crowd control
more information: or
time frame: 2012Q3 - 2015Q2
In 2014 our main contribution in this project was a demonstration of data from a Myriamodem network being collected by a computer and visualizing it (see Development). Later new sensors (BLE, PIR) and an SD-card interface PCB were added. On of the first public researches with MyriaModem in the Cobra museum in Amstelveen.
status 2015: the basis of our GPRS gateway is working, but need some improvement. The final demonstration will be in June.
purpose: MyriaModem ↔ Smartphone communication.
status: demonstrated
partner: Devlab - Ambient Living with Embedded Networks
purpose: following the movements of a COPD patient in his house
more information:
time frame: 2008Q1 - 2010Q4
status: demonstrated

4. Building Projects (protection)

partner: Devlab - Design, Monitoring and operation of Adaptive Networked Systems
purpose: adaptivity in buildings
more information:
time frame: 2012Q4 - 2015Q2
In 2014 we successfully realized our modulo-timeframe. Based on the availability of energy we can dynamically change the length of the timeframe of the myriamodem, while still being part of the network. So messages will be passed through, but for these nodes speed changes with the timeframe. The gossip behavior of the network will remain the same, even in minimal conditions!
We use this functionality in combination with our energy harvesters. We worked on gateways and sensors whig are needed in the final demonstrator 2015Q2.
Sensor kit
Based on the temperature monitoring we made a sensor kit for commercial purposes. It can be rent in periods of minimal 4 weeks. The sensor kit contains a server, 10 myriamodems with a sensor and a USB gateway. All in packages, so friendly to use. Also the web based viewer is upgraded to a β level. Within 5 minutes the whole installation can be setup.
timeframe: 2014
status: Prototype Model
Note: for your application you can ask for the sensor you need. It is very easy to change the sensor type or you can take a mix of several sensors.
Temperature monitoring
purpose: a second network is deployed in our office, based on the latest Myriamodem developments. The temperature in several rooms and the hall is measured. A new database concept and viewer were used.
time frame: 2014
status: Functional Model
Window and Door Monitoring
purpose: to deploy a MyriaNed network to monitor the states of doors and windows in an office building
time frame: 2013
status: Functional Model, currently in use in our office
Security Light Indicator
purpose: in case of emergency activate an escape route by security light
time frame: 2013
status: Functional Model

5. Surrounding projects (experience)

Living Light
purpose: a wireless Living Light experience on buildings (with about 500 3 color LEDs)
more information: new technology software was needed on the MyriaModem, which had actually nothing to do with MyriaNed but was based on its lowest communication layers
time frame: 2013Q1 - 2013Q3
status: Functional Model

6. Development (technical)

Development is about the correct working of MyriaNed. That means for us:
correct radio communication and correct gossiping
easy to use, configure and program (in "C")
maintainable and easy to handle
if battery powered then for at least 1 year
correct measurements
Continuous improvements are necessary in this field due to improvement of the technology and/or a better understanding of what is needed.

Our contribution to the succes of the MyriaNed through the years:
2014 – 2016: Proheal
purpose: items like self organization, self repairing, self information, self control and adaptation will be handled in a Myriamodem network.
more information:
timeframe: 2014Q1 - 2016Q4
2013 – 2014: OTAP firmware (Over The Air Programming)
New software can be programmed wirelessly in a MyriaModem node.
timeframe: 2013Q4 – 2014Q1
status: Functional Model
2013 – 2014: Myriamodem data collection and viewer
Myriamodem network information can be stored in a database on a PC. A bridge (ethernet<>Myriamodem) and a simple viewer (sniffer, sensor log and webserver log) have been made to show the data. Used in a demo for Ewids.
timeframe: 2013Q2 – 2014Q1
status: Functional Model
2013 – 2014 MyriaNed2 software
2014: we released in December our Myriamodem Library v2.3. With this we have a more flexible and more stable Myriamodem MESH network. Even in Wifi over controlled (like on fairs) surroundings our MyriaModem applications are working!
The MyriaNed software has been divided in different layers:
radio layer / neighbor layer / gossip layer / application layer / main.
A client mainly needs to work in the application layer and have to set some parameters in the main layer.
