GDP Deployment Notes

Data users email list created

If you would like to be notified of data anomalies or changes in the sensor actuator send an email to asking to be added to the email list,


Unless otherwise noted, the name of the corresponding logs are derived from the physical location (currently bwrc or swarmlab) and the lowercase MAC address:


For example, a sensor with MAC address C0:98:E5:30:00:03 in the immersion room (which is in swarmlab) will be named edu.berkeley.eecs.swarmlab.device.c098e5300003


See Provisioning Sensors for instructions on how to add new sensors.

Configuring Gateways

See Configuring Gateways for information about setting up gateway hosts (typically either BBBs or SwarmBoxes).


A minimal visualization tool is Here. Note that the list of sensors is manually updated for the moment, so it may not show all the sensors listed below.

Operational Notes

  • 6-17-16 2:59PM Repaired broken Blink in server room. Was reading all zero, now detecting movement correctly.
  • 7/11/16 Fixed powerblade on air compressor - was installed backward. Data collected after 7/11 looks correct. Prior was in error. Note that energy accumulated goes to zero when powerblade was disconnected for inspection. Good marker.
  • 7/14/16 9:29AM Correlated spike in temperature and humidity for a short period of time across all BLEES in the server room. Probably related to someone working in the room and having propped the door open.
  • 7/17/16-7/19/16: Missed about 2 days worth of data due to bug in the MQTT-gateway.
  • 7/19/16 4:05 PM - 4:19PM: Put a cover over the Lab Rear wall BLEE causing the light level to go to zero. Temp and humidity are down as well.
  • 7/19/16 4:20PM - 4:31PM: Put a cover over BLEE in server room, mid wall. Light level goes to zero, temp goes up. Other sensors in the server room do not show similar readings
  • 7/25/16 - Added sensors and gateway to BWRC office area. New batteries
  • 8/1/16 BBB004 down for maintenance 2-5pm.
  • 8/8/2016 Replaced batteries in server room and Kens office
  • 8/8/16 Removed test powerblade from air compressor outlet strip
  • 8/26/16 9:40AM - 10:10am covered light sensor on BLEE in Ken's office - C0:98:E5:30:00:A1
  • 8/26/16 11:42 - Covered light sensor on BLEE Center of student seating area, above thermostat - C0:98:E5:30:00:37
  • 8/26/16 12:30 -12:45 (approx) increased humidity on BLEE Brian Office above thermostat - C0:98:E5:30:00:A0
  • 8/26/16 2:41-2:47pm increased humidity on Rear Wall BLEE - C0:98:E5:30:00:36

Operational Notes

  • Sensors installed, new batteries 7/15/16






There is also a Motion sensors placed on door. The format is JSON and provides three axis accelrometer, gyroscope, mangnometer and time stamp. The log for the sensor is:


The sensors have been placed in the graduate office space. The power blades are connected to power cords in use by students.
