Testbeds

CCI hosts two shared experimental testbeds for research into internet of things.

Tutornet

Tutornet is a low-power wireless network testbed deployed at the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California (USC). It is extensively used for research and teaching at USC. Tutornet is currently composed of 113 sensor nodes (91 TelosB, 13 MicaZ, 9 OpenMote) covering two adjacent floors in the Ronald Tutor Hall building. It features three generations of wireless sensor nodes, all with IEEE802.15.4-compliant radios operating on the 2.4 GHz frequency band.

CCI IoT TESTBED

The CCI IoT testbed, currently under construction, is an  campus-wide experimental testbed at USC, containing hundreds of sensors, actuators, processors and wireless radios. It will support research pertaining to evaluation of new hardware, sensing, processing, algorithms, and software for the Internet of Things.
