Dr. Thorsten Kramp, research staff member and co-developer of Mote Runner at IBM Research - Zurich, holds a mote programmed with Mote Runner to detect movement and light.
The Mote Runner dashboard is based on Eclipse, that provides a platform for testing, debugging, and maintaining WSN applications.
The Mote Runner moniker refers to Mote’s—or wireless sensor nodes—that gather information ranging from temperature, movement and light and refer back to a network. Here's the logo.
Mote Runner was developed with the Java, in combination with a virtual machine developed from the ground up for sensors. It provides application portability and shields developers from the complexities of the underlying hardware, according to IBM.
This shows a spatial view of the motes.
