Applications

Here are some possible applications that you can build using the WiSense platform.

Home
Automation

Use humidity sensors to know when your plants need water. Bring in your clothes when it's about to rain. Locate easily your misplaced car keys. Receive an alert if your refrigerator door is left open. Receive alerts remotely if intruders are detected. Use a pressure sensor to figure out the level in your water tank. Use your mobile phone to monitor all of these and more. These are among many scenarios definitely coming into homes of the future. Home automation is today a luxury. Very soon it will be a commodity. More applications ...

Supermarket
Dynamics

Motion sensors and proximity sensors are key to location-based data gathering. A wireless sensor network in a supermarket can give valuable information about visitor numbers and peak hours. Store managers can know which products trigger interest but are not purchased. They can gain insight about crowded aisles, leading to store rearrangement. Are customers doing impulse buying or do they take time in choosing? What is the average waiting time in the checkout queue? There is a lot of software intelligence that makes this a challenging application.

Smart
Building

Optimize energy consumption across the building by switching off air-conditioning in empty rooms or turning on lights only when natural lighting is unavailable. Light sensors and motion sensors enable this. Slow down escalators when they are not in use. Keep track of occupancy in rooms and floors to facilitate evacuation during emergencies. Tag important assets to implement geo-fencing. These and more are essential to what makes a building smart.

Campus
Network

Setup a testbed in a college campus so that students can benefit from hands-on programming on actual devices. Allow students to develop and test optimized routing protocols. Allow students to conceive and integrate new sensors into the testbed for novel applications. Structure an entire semester course on protocol engineering and wireless networking. Course brochure.

Industrial
Automation

Track important assets at industrial sites. Gather relevant sensor data and log the same in a printing press factory floor. Monitor temperature and humidity at critical locations in an oil processing plant. Replace complex cabling in any industrial plant with wireless connectivity.

Green
Cities

Field data on environmental pollution is essential to decision making. Monitor air quality at key industrial sites or highways close to residential areas. Look for key contaminating agents from the exhausts of public buses. Monitor the cleanliness in lakes, particularly those used as sources of drinking water. Integrate these and more into a central system for pollution monitoring and control.

About Us

The founders of WiSense have many years of industry experience. Above all, it is their passion to create products and solutions for India that defines WiSense.

Wireless

We recognize that building wireless systems is technically challenging. This is why we provide a wireless module that our customers can simply plug into any preferred microcontroller board and get going right away. We remove the hassle out of developing and debugging hardware so that you can focus on your applications. Of course, we also provide the MCU board to make your job even simpler.

Sensors

There are literally hundreds of different types of sensors in the market. Selecting the right sensor for a particular application can be a time-consuming task. We simplify this by providing the know-how. We also go one step further in assisting you integrate specialized sensors on to our platform. Sensors we are integrating ...

Framework Code

To enable easy integration of any type of sensor to the WiSense platform, we have made our sensor framework code public. The code includes source files that demonstrate how light sensors, temperature sensors or reed switches can be programmed and accessed. Explanation to some of this code can be found on WiSense blog. You can use this code to quickstart your own sensor integration work. This code can be downloaded from our BitBucket repository.

GUI

We recognize that your customers and laypersons need a simple and intuitive interface to manage a wireless sensor network. We provide a browser-based interface that does just that. Moreover, the network can also be monitored from your favourite mobile device, be it Android or Apple. Watch a demo of the GUI.
