[Tinyos-help] Sense Application on xsm

Hi, Abhishek

A major difference between mica2 and xsm motes is that
they have different sensors (different mag/microphone/PIR).
Blink can compile because it does not use any sensors.
If you try a sensing application, you may want to make
sure to use correct sensor drivers. A way to make
sure of it is to read build/xsm/app.c and look at the
wired file names.

As to the Sense application, I tend not to think it
is up-to-date enough to try xsm with. You may want
to find an xsm-compatible application. For example,
I think XSM's are shipped with a test application
make by CrossBow. If you get a complete tinyos-1.x
source tree from CVS, including the "contrib"
directory, you may find some useful applications
there (maybe in contrib/exscal?). I guess you can
also modify the Oscilloscope application to work
on xsm with some minor effort, given that you have
the correct drivers ready.

Have fun,
