Link Measurements with Tmote Skys

by Tobias Rein, (c) ETHZ, 2007

Link test data based on 18 Tmote Sky motes (2.4GHz) placed randomly in an indoor (office building) environment. Each link measurement is the record of the temporal characteristics of a link during 30 minutes based on a packet stream with a frequency of 5 packets every second. Using different sender configuration the datasets total to 2 millions packets sent over about 600 links.

Monitoring Volcanic Eruptions with a Wireless Sensor Network

by Matt Welsh and others, (c) Harvard University, 2006

This project used a wireless sensor network to monitor seismic data on an active volcano. The project has published various talks, papers as well as the hw/sw design and experimental data:


Intel Lab Data

by Sam Madden, (c) MIT, 2004

Mica2Dot sensors with weather boards collected timestamped topology information, along with humidity, temperature, light and voltage values once every 31 seconds. Data was collected using the TinyDB in-network query processing system, built on the TinyOS platform.
