Using SensLAB as a First Class Scienti c Tool for Large Scale Wireless Sensor Network Experiments

Abstract : This paper presents a description of SensLAB(Very Large Scale Open Wireless Sensor Network Testbed) that has been developed and deployed in order to allow the evaluation through experimentations of scalable wireless sensor network protocols and applications. SensLAB's main and most important goal is to o er an accurate open access multiusers scienti c tool to support the design, the development tuning, and the experimentation of real large-scale sensor network applications. The SensLAB testbed is composed of 1024 nodes over 4 sites. Each site hosts 256 sensor nodes with speci c characteristics in order to o er a wide spectrum of possibilities and heterogeneity. Within a given site, each one of the 256 nodes is able both to communicate via its radio interface to its neighbors and to be con gured as a sink node to exchange data with any other "sink node". The hardware and software architectures that allow to reserve, con gure, deploy rmwares and gather experimental data and monitoring information are described. We also present demonstration examples to illustrate the use of the SensLAB testbed and encourage researchers to test and benchmark their applications/protocols on a large scale WSN testbed.
