Interfacing smart phones with low power wireless radios enables the phone to interact with low power wireless devices such as individual motes of a wireless sensor network. Smart phones are ubiquitous and offer advanced user interface capabilities such as tilt sensor, accelerometer and touch screen. Combining both technologies opens up a whole new class of possibilities for a user to interact with low power wireless devices. The goal of this project is to develop applications for sending and receiving real time data to from wireless motes. This type of applications is not only useful for industries that have large facilities and they want to monitor a specific area by sending people on site, but also it is useful to get real time data from the sensors inside of a building while being outside. Smart phones capabilities such as tilt sensors, touch screen and lightweight can be used to control devices such as helicopters and cars that are connected to wireless devices for testing purposes.
