In Figure 2bR c and R ct measure the resistance of the solution and the reactive resistance of corrosion, respectively. The corrosion characteristics can be identified and modeled once the elements in crossbow telosb equivalent circuit are confirmed.

The authors of [ 182425 ] presented the calculation of these parameters, which are beyond the scope of this study. The corrosion principle in Figure 2 is deduced from the corrosion in RC structures, but the corrosion in the marine or pipeline environment involving steels agrees with the identical principle. Corrosion is not only associated with societal issues including human life and safety, the cost of corrosion and conservation of materials [ 27 ]but is also a difficult phenomenon to understand, because of the lack of real-time corrosion data. So far, it is still a key challenge to efficiently acquire corrosion data without much human intervention and extra servicing costs.

A significant observation is that the electron is presented and transferred inside the barrier layer or on the surface of the reinforcing steel. The energy from the steel-smelting process is delivered by the electrochemical reactions and the physicochemical processes. Therefore, besides serving as the event signals, the corrosion energy brings an appealing opportunity to be employed as a kind of sustainable energy source to power the sensing device. Although the corrosion energy is able to supply a wireless sensor mote, two critical issues have to be addressed for practicality: 1 what device to use to sense the corrosion signal, as well as to output the crossbow telosb energy; and 2 how to design an effective energy management policy, such that the wireless corrosion-monitoring sensor system can operate in a human-free fashion for a long-term period, like, 20 years, 30 years, or longer.

The main goal of EPS is to provide a sustainable solution to the corrosion monitoring application that is based on wireless sensors.

The major challenges are designing a device for detecting corrosion events, accurately monitoring the corrosion status and crossbow telosb the harvested micro-corrosion energy. In the crossbow telosb sections, we first introduce the requirements of a real scenario and the architecture of EPS and then present our design details, component choices and implementation considerations.

In corrosion monitoring applications, events i. Different from a mobile target tracking sensor system, which is a typical crossbow telosb scenario with almost a full duty cycle, it is reasonable and sufficient for corrosion monitoring applications to acquire short-term data, with a large time interval, such as one day or several days. Therefore, we can configure corrosion monitoring with a very small duty cycle and a short duty duration. In practice, for crossbow telosb, it is sufficient that the sensor mote samples the corrosion environment once per day and s every time; in other words, if EPS runs with a duty cycle of 0. Besides the duty characteristics, however, we have to consider the problem of matching the differences among the corrosion-sensing device, the charging unit, and the sensor mote, because they have different operational behaviors in voltage and output power.

Figure 3 illustrates the operation series of EPS, where its operating times are divided into two types: the sampling window and the recharging window.

Quickstart: TelosB - TinyOS Wiki

In a sampling window, EPS samples sensors at a given frequency and transmits the reading once a sample is completed, while in a recharging window, EPS disables all application-specific tasks and recharges its energy buffer a supercapacitor until a specified supply voltage is achieved. As shown in Figure 3EPS works with best efforts sampling alternates, recharging continuously, as long as the corrosion is in progress. In addition, the time periods of different sampling windows can be kept similar by well-controlled energy management to be discussed crossbow telosb a later crossbow telosbwhile the recharging windows are time-varying, because the energy released from corrosion processes is rather dynamic in the time domain.

In EPS design, we build a three electrode-based corrosion-sensing device and an energy-harvesting unit, both of which connect to a Telosb mote the architecture of EPS is shown in Figure 4a.

We select Telosb mote, because it is: 1 equipped with a low-power MCU and a radio chip; 2 low-cost and size-small; and 3 easy to extend to support more external sensors via its multiple ADC Analog-to-Digit Conversion ports. Since the duty cycle of corrosion monitoring applications is extremely low and the corrosion energy always exists, we do not need a large energy buffer, and then, we use only a small-capacitance supercapacitor to store the crossbow telosb energy, rather than using the hybrid energy storage system [ 710 ] or the rechargeable Li-battery [ 528 ], thereby reducing the deployment cost, the package size and the complexity of management.

The architecture of the EPS sensor mote shown in a and the testbed with the concrete pore solution in the box shown in b. EPN, electrochemical potential noise. The electrochemical corrosion status of the steel-solution system can be recognized by an active monitoring technique AMT and a passive monitoring technique PMT. According to the universal transfer function for the general corrosion in Figure 2abundantly actuating signals can be used to excite the steel-solution system in the linear region and the nonlinear region. Therefore, the electrochemical elements, including R cR ctZ W and Z CPEcan be extracted in the time domain or in the frequency domain via nalyzing the responses of the steel-solution system to these actuating signals. In order to better understand the TinyOS programming paradigm and how to develop more complex TinyOS application, requiring also the use of other resources, such as radio and serial communication with a connected host the latter very useful for collecting debug information during your experimentplease follow the TinyOS tutorial at the following link.

Assuming that you have already a good comprehension of the TinyOS programming and you are able to write your own application, in case you want to exploit the additional sensors such as the context-aware and energy metering unit provided by our platform and interfaced with the TelosB mote a set of libraries are available and can be requested via email to Guildford testbed administrator.
