We have added the Nordic nRF52840 dongle as a new target platform to FlockLab!
March 2020: FlockLab 2 online!
Dec 2019: flocklab-tools (Python Support for FlockLab)
We created the flocklab-tools Python package which supports the CLI commands from the Flocklab shell tool (CLI). In addition it provides a Python API for managing FlockLab tests, supports the programmatic creation of FlockLab test xml files, and allows to visualize FlockLab test results.
We have created some graphs to keep track of the synchronization status of the Flocklab observers.
In addition, NTP time synchronization, CPU load and other parameters are visualized for each observer.
Aug 2018: Monitoring of Observers
In addition to the usual Flocklab status page, you can now access our more detailed monitoring page. If there is an issue with one of the observers (e.g. with timesync), it will be shown on that page.
In addition, we have created a new page that shows the availability / uptime of each observer. The time interval is selectable from 5 minutes up to 1 year.
Dec 2017: Flocklab Statistics
A new page has been added with some basic statistics about Flocklab users and the tests that ran on Flocklab over the past few years.
Jan 2015: Plugin for Cooja
We are happy to announce the Cooja plugin for FlockLab. This plugin allows to inspect test results in the same way as simulations with Cooja, hence allowing quick inspection of GPIO traces and power measurements, together with serial input and output.
The plugin can be downloaded here.
Aug 2014: Addition of FlockDAQ for Better Tracing Accuracy
We have extended our observers with an FPGA module to improve the tracing accuracy. Flocklab is now able to capture GPIO events and set actuation pins with a resolution of 100ns!
Time synchronization accuracy between observers is in the order of microseconds.
