IBM has launched a software development kit for an application dubbed Mote Runner with the aim of spurring the adoption of sensors in various devices, products and systems.

Mote Runner is a free download, the company said in its announcement at the 2010 Sensors Expo & Conference. The Mote Runner moniker refers to motes — or wireless sensor nodes — that gather information ranging from temperature, movement and light and refer back to a network.

Meanwhile, MEMSIC, which makes these micro sensor systems, will include Mote Runner on one of its Iris sensors. The MEMSIC Iris is a 2.4 GHz wireless sensor mote used for enabling low-power wireless sensor networks in buildings or traffic patterns at an intersection.
