Companies test prototype wireless-sensor nets
: ""At this stage, there are over 100 groups around the world that are using the combination of our open-source Motes with the TinyOS [operating system] and TinyDB [database]," said Berkeley professor David Culler, who is also director of Intel Research's "lablette" in Berkeley.. In addition to the high-profile military application, wireless-sensor networks could be put to legions of civilian uses, from environmental monitoring to providing heath care monitoring for the elderly while allowing them more freedom to move about.
