My suggestion is to use Mote as sensor device to sniff  the environment and monitor information from any kind of energy,such as heat, light,sound, motion...etc.

Best luck,

Subject: [Playerstage-users] Player interface with physical hardware

I am a new user of this player project is to build a surveillance module and a patient monitoring module  for a Pioneer robot.At this stage I need to select my sensors.My proposed sensors are Temperature and Humidity probe,PIR sensor,Smoke and Fire detector,Laser scanner (URG-04LX).
In a traditional manner to  these sensors with a pc we use DAQ card (i.e.LabJack-U3/U12) and then programme with different software.
But now I need to communicate these with these sensors via player software.So Do I need to use any DAQ card or I can do this without DAQ card via serial or USB port.I mean; does player able to communicate with those sensors through the standard serial or USB port (without any daq card)?
If So please give some detail information How to do this?
Is there any one who can tell me regarding this matter (Player interface with physical hardware)?
Thanks for your time.
Best Regards-Mamun
