Potential innovative applications of smartdust and intelligent devices
The ASTRA project investigated the use of mobile ad hoc networks and more specifically "Smartdust" for transport applications. A trial using MOTES technology was hosted in Newcastle with a pervasive intelligent corridor established by a network of fixed MOTES on roads near Newcastle Central Station.
Mobile MOTES were also placed in several buses. Communication between a static node and a moving node on-board a vehicle was achieved, showing that communication can take place between road side and vehicles using a network of MOTES.
