IRIDA is a visualization protocol for Wireless Sensor Network research and prototyping. It has been developed at the TCS/Sensor Lab of the University of Geneva by Marios Karagiannis. With IRIDA you can visualize most aspects of WSN operation in real time for debugging or demoing purposes alike. The protocol is platform agnostic and modular. For more information about IRIDA and how to use it in your projects, please use the menu above. Irida is the modern greek word for Iris. According to Wikipedia, the iris (plural: irides or irises) is a thin, circular structure in the eye, responsible for controlling the diameter and size of the pupils and thus the amount of light reaching the retina. We chose this name to show that Irida will allow WSN users and researchers to see what is going on in the network. IRIDA is of course free to use and change in any way you see fit. You can redistribute all information and source code you find in this website, as long as you don’t sell it and keep it free for everyone.

IRIDA was used in a BSc bachelor project, completed by Mrs. Laetitia Dallinge. The resulting text is available here (about Irida) and here (a small survey about Geographic Routing in WSN) (both in French).
