WiSense coordinator connected to Raspberry Pi

The coordinator node can be connected to the USB port of the raspberry Pi. The USB port will provide power to the coordinator as well as serial connectivity between the Pi and the coordinator node. When the USB cable (connected to the coordinator node) is plugged into the Pi, a /dev/ttyUSBx device will be created. You can run the “dmesg” command to get the name of the serial device. It will usually be /dev/ttyUSB0. The USB chip on the coordinator is an FTDI device which is supported by the Pi.

You just need to copy the gateway utility and the sample xively app (which sends sensor data from sensor nodes to xively) to the Pi and you are ready to send data out.
