Contribution to Conference
This demo paper describes the usability and effectiveness of our distributed energy measurement system for WSNs. The system is composed of several micro-controller-based oscilloscopes - named PotatoScope. The intention of PotatoScope was to enable a scalable and dependable energy measurement for challenging environmental conditions, e.g., WSN outdoor deployments. We will present the general architecture by using two of our nodes and demonstrate how to measure energy consumption of nodes in our testbed. Certainly, the PotatoScope can be used standalone to measure energy comsumption of other devices, such as other micro controllers or single-board computers, e.g. Raspberry Pis. The demo will introduce a GUI, that displays information directly on a computer. Both the PotatoScope, including the hardware layout and the firmware, as well as the distributed energy measurement system is free to be used in own projects.
