Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consist of large numbers of tiny sensor devices with wireless communication capabilities which gather sensor data on the physical environment and transmit this data to more powerful servers for analysis. The Zigduino is an open-source Arduino compatible microcontroller platform with an integrated 802.15.4 radio. The Loosely-coupled Component Infrastructure (LooCI) is a component-based middleware for building sensor network applications that runs on the Contiki operating system, which provides IPv6 networking. In this paper, the authors describe their approach to, and experiences of porting the LooCI/Contiki stack to the Zigduino platform.
