Welcome to the WISP Wiki.
This wiki contains information pertaining to the older WISP 4.1 platform.
See the new WISP 5 wiki at wisp5.wikispaces.com
The NFC-WISP project has now been open sourced!!
See the new nfc-wisp wiki to learn more!
This project is supported in part by NSF Grant CNS-1305072, entitled "CI-ADDO-EN: Infrastructure for the RF-Powered Computing Community." Additional support from NSF Grant EEC-1028725, Intel Corporation, and the Google Faculty Research Awards program.
Book with many wisp-related articles available now! "Wirelessly powered sensor networks and computational RFID."

WISP (Wireless Identification and Sensing Platform) is a sensing and computing device that is powered and read by off the shelf UHF RFID readers. WISPs have on board microcontrollers that can sample a variety of sensing devices, creating a wirelessly-networked, battery-less sensor device. WISPs have powered everything from analog light sensors to temperature sensors to strain gauges. The computing features of WISPs have also been used by RFID security researchers.

includes status information and instructions for obtaining current releases.
has tutorials for getting everything set up and running.
has various informational sections for WISP collaborators.
Current Documentation and Archival Documentation
are for in-depth explanatory information, as opposed to Downloads and Releases which is for quick status updates.
includes informational pages that are not WISP documentation or getting started tutorials. Topics include power management, RFID protocol, etc.
has administrative tasks and to-do lists for Wiki developers and WISP developers.
The Wiki is currently needs development help. See the
