MansOS = Mobile agent netted sensor Operating System.
MansOS is an operating system for wireless sensor networks and netted embedded systems. It is designed for users familiar with C programming and Unix-like environment. MansOS supports various platforms and controllers, including TelosB and MSP430, Atmega controllers and Arduino, and others. Users may develop and test their systems on a PC as a virtual "mote".
