This project proposes a file system as an abstraction layer for a uniform way of accessing any system resource on wireless sensor nodes. Even functions and libraries can be represented and accessed in this uniform way allowing developers a novel way to design and implement applications.
Tiny, Ressource poor sensor nodes require novel operating systems concepts to perform appropriate, but also to present a application (and application developer) friendly interface. The project seeks to develop a micro-kernel, distributed operating system that provides UNIX-style API for programmers and represents all ressources as filesystems like ressources.
