The demo highlights how intelligent lighting control can be comprehensively deployed using 6LoWPAN technology over 802.15.4 devices, along with embedded Web services via CoAP and eDTLS security for Web-based lighting application development.
The demo is powered by Sensinode’s NanoServices, an end-to-end solution that brings embedded Web services to devices such as Atmel’s ATmega256RFR2, which is used for controlling the street and building lights.
“Most existing M2M lighting solutions are based on proprietary protocols that fall short on critical design criteria such as robustness, security, future-proofing and scalability,” a Sensinode rep explained.
“[However, our] end-to-end system solution for lighting is entirely based on IETF standards and delivers a number of benefits including rapid application development, robustness and scalability, as well as end-to-end security.”
