OpenSource Hardware of OpenMoteSTM

Hello, here is the source of OpenMoteSTM board, including device library, schematic and PCB. All of those are designed by eagle. We also provide a 3d model for openmotestm using sketchUp!!! You can open the openmotestm.skp file with sketchUp to see what openmotestm looks like. Part of package/device/model came from the library of eagle and sparkfun.

Using OpenMoteSTM with OpenWSN

Hardware & Tools

Software Installation

Installation of Tap

  1. install tun
  2. configure tun

    • Go: "Start"->"Programs"->Tap For Windows->utilities->"Add a new TAP virtual ethernet adapter"
    • Open Network Adapter,Looking for "Local Area Connection" adapter which is created by Tap windows
    • Rename it by "OpenWSN"
    • Enter following code in a windows command prompt, setting IP:

      netsh interface ipv4 add address name=OpenWSN address= mask= netsh interface ipv6 add address interface=OpenWSN address=bbbb::1/64

    • Enable Routing ("IEEE802.3" is the network interface you are using to connect to internet)

      netsh interface ipv4 set interface interface=IEEE802.3 forwarding=enabled netsh interface ipv4 set interface interface=OpenWSN forwarding=enabled

      netsh interface ipv6 set interface interface=IEEE802.3 forwarding=enabled netsh interface ipv6 set interface interface=OpenWSN forwarding=enabled

    • Add path to routing table

      netsh interface ipv6 delete route bbbb::/64 OpenWSN netsh interface ipv6 add route bbbb::/64 OpenWSN fe80::8

  6. After downloading,IAR will stop at debugging mode. Press F5 to start the program. You will see the LEDs will blink by sequence

Using OpenWSN Program

  1. Downloading "03oosopenwsn-Debug" program by the procedures above
  2. Connect OpenMoteSTM to PC by USB Cabel,PC will install the Silicon driver for OpenMoteSTM
  3. Open a windows prompt, and enter the following code to start openvisualizer cd "Your\openwsn-swREL-1.8.0\Directory"\software\openvisualizer\ scons runweb
  4. Open your favourite brower and type in "localhost:8080" or "", You will see the openwsn openvisualizer page.
  5. click "toggle" button to set the mote as DAGROOT. If everything goes well, you will find the blue LED light and the green one blinks. To see what's going behind them, please visit: ]]>]]>
