STORM focuses on developing new products, systems en concepts based on wireless sensor networks (WSN).
The project can be divided into three sections, namely; the central project Building Blocks consisting of the main project’s hardware and software, the application project Greenhouse, and the application project Tracking & Tracing.
Within STORM, Almende focused the research activities on development of the software architecture and the operating system. For the software architecture, Almende aims for modular software development. This allows for easy variations in functionality, without completely altering the entire software architecture. Very similar to the software architecture, the operating system should facilitate modularity. Hence, the aim is modulair usable operating system, which is ported in real-time to numerous processes.
