The overall architecture of the WiSER system is shown in Fig. 1. The diagram identifies the main components and their building blocks. As shown in the figure, the two main modules to be developed are the hardware (HW) platform and the software (SW) platform both of which will be described further in this report. Integration with the ORBIT control framework provides for easy experimental access to the community with tools such as OMF (ORBIT Management Framework) that is used for experimental control and measurements. Key components corresponding to the block diagram in Fig. 1 are the FPGA code, embedded hardware and software (these are “hardware functions” implemented on the typically resource limited soft-core or hard-core CPU), host software, and coordination functions (necessary for deployment of a large number of potentially heterogeneous sensing devices).
