Weekly Report - 01/08/14




I haven't made much progress this week. I remembered that before I could get going with writing a CoAP application, I have to actually get the LoWPAN integrated with a proper network (rather than just a PTP link between the 6lbr and some computer), which I had tried earlier and I was confused at the time as to why it didn't just work. I've been trying to figure it out but to no avail.

Since I've just been piggybacking on the redcables network thus far, I think my next step will probably be to take the equipment back home where I have root access to the router and more control over the network configuration.

In happier although not entirely useful news, I did find a nice 802.15.4 packet sniffer implementation for Contiki which specifically works with the stm32w radio (which might have been really helpful a couple of weeks ago). It outputs 802.15.4 frames in pcap format, which can be piped into Wireshark to view a live capture.
