MyriaMesh is an RF based wireless connectivity protocol that is radio agnostic and has nodes that inter-operate and self-organize a connected and fully integrated wireless IoT Platform. A MyriaMesh network is a large distributed system with a collective intelligence – a key characteristic that differentiates MyriaMesh from traditional wired or wireless networks and makes it extremely scalable and resilient. It creates a fully meshed network topology for Internet of Things devices and applications.
MyriaMesh networks, its supported applications and end-to-end solutions have successfully been deployed in the built environment (buildings, cities and industrial compounds), health care and science industry.
MyriaMesh is available as license-based software for Original Equipment Manufacturers that are looking for a sensor and control network in support of end-to-end IoT applications. MyriaMesh is deployed as embedded software on Nordic chips.
MyriaMesh is beschikbaar als standaard modules met een Nordic NRF of Semtech LoRa chip voorzien van de MyriaMesh protocol stack.
With MyriaMesh, Chess Wise delivers end-to-end smart building applications that can be deployed separately – as a single application – or in interoperation with each other.

The development of the MyriaMesh protocol is inspired by the nature of living organisms. Nature shows us beautiful examples of self-organized systems of cells, all contributing equally to an organism as a whole. Examples are organs and cells, colony of ants or shoal of fish. Organic systems grow in size and behavior, simply by adding a cell that automatically becomes a supporting part of the system.
Consider a flock of starlings. Starlings can make incredible coordinated changes in direction en masse. It seems like magic. The startling question is, how can an individual bird spark a change if all birds are busy responding to the movement of every other starling and how do they do this so incredibly quickly? Giorgio Parisi, a theoretical physicist with the University of Rome, explains;
“The change in the behavioral state of one animal affects and is affected by that of all other animals in the group, no matter how large the group is. Scale-free correlations provide each animal with an effective perception range much larger than the direct interindividual interaction range, thus enhancing global response to perturbations.”
No matter the size, the system works. The system – the flock – is extremely scalable and resilient. If one bird changes speed or direction, so do the others. The question remains, however, how does an individual bird spark a change if all are busy responding to the movement of every bird? And more importantly, how do they do it so quickly?
In particle physics, synchronized orientation is found in systems with ‘low noise,’ in which signals are transmitted without degrading. But low noise isn’t enough to produce synchronized speeds. The Roman researchers explain the phenomena of ferromagnetism, where particles in a magnet exhibit perfect interconnection at a precise, ‘critical’ temperature” (Wired, 2010)
Further research shows that each bird is actually reacting to the birds nearest to it, and that the movement is the result of a series of short-range reactions. One bird’s movement only affects its seven closest neighbors. So one bird affects its seven closest neighbors, and each of those neighbors’ movements affect their closest seven neighbors and so on throughout the flock. This is how a flock is able to look like a twisting, morphing cloud with some parts moving in one direction at one speed and other parts moving at another direction and at another speed.
This analogy became the starting point for the development of MyriaMesh, a full mesh network in which all nodes are equal and each node contributes to an ever more powerful and efficient IoT Platform. In this analogy birds are networked nodes, ferromagnetism is one way to deliver the communication network packets and the flock is the network.
