We’re happy that Jesse Craig will be exhibiting his SenseMesh wireless mesh network project again this year.   A wireless mesh network differs from a traditional wireless network in that instead of having a limited number of wired access points, the network connection is distributed among “nodes” that communicate with each other to share the network connection across a large area.

Jesse says, “SenseMesh is a wireless sensor network mesh that integrates nodes with various sensors to provide a stream of real-time data. The data can include information like temperature, humidity, acceleration, and pressure. The network is both self-healing and self-organizing, providing for a robust means of communicating data across moderate distances. Technologies used include: ZigBee, I2C, Microchip PIC, LiPo batteries, and solar power.”
