2005 CENS Summer Intern:The concept behind the Water level Control System is to program a mote to the extent that it can not only read and send data, but can also interpret and use the data as needed. Normally when a mote collects and sends data, it is unreadable and contains other information such as the header of the packet, its address, it’�¡�Çs length, etc. The Water level Control System can interpret the data collected, display readable data onto the computer screen and use the data to determine the status of the water level and pump. It is a simple model system that represents a water supply and demand situation. For example, if there was a water supply at the bottom of a mountain and water was needed at the top of the mountain, a wireless mote at the top of the mountain can send a packet to another wireless mote at the bottom of a mountain to indicate that water is needed. The Water Level Control System works in the same way except at a much smaller scale, however, it was designed such that it can also apply on a larger scale.
