RIOT OS on M3 nodes

27 Feb 2015

IoT-LAB supports various embedded operating systems that are well suited for the Internet Of Things, such as RIOT OS. RIOT is a real-time multi-threading operating system that considers devices with minimal resources that are typically found in the Internet of Things.

To enable IoT-LAB and RIOT users to compile and run this OS on M3 nodes you can consult this documentation

Maintenance operation of February 5th

25 Feb 2015

The whole FIT IoT-LAB testbed was closed on February 5th for maintenance and upgrade operations.

During this day we deployed new software; here are the details:

Radio sniffer

We implemented new features linked to Control Nodes, that let’s you configure them as radio sniffers during experiments. Learn how to use it through this documentation. More details on implementation are documented on GitHub.

New Linux kernel on A8 nodes

Linux kernel of open A8 nodes have been updated to version 3.18.5. Read the Linux nodes tutorial to discover usage and features.

CLI tools upgrade to version 1.5.3
