Section: Other Grants and Activities
The purpose of the SensLAB project is to deploy a very large scale open wireless sensor network platform. SensLAB's main and most important goal is to offer an accurate and efficient scientific tool to help in the design, development, tuning, and experimentation of real large-scale sensor network applications. The sensLAB platform is distributed among 4 sites and is composed of 1,024 nodes. Each location hosts 256 sensor nodes with specific characteristics in order to offer a wide spectrum of possibilities and heterogeneity. The four test beds are however part of a common global testbed as several nodes will have global connectivity such that it will be possible to experiment a given application on all 1K sensors at the same time.
SensTOOLS (INRIA ADT)
The main and most important goal of the SensTOOLS ADT project is to foster the design, development, tuning, and experimentation of real large scale sensor network applications. Sensor networks have recently emerged as a premier research topic. However, due to their massively distributed nature, the design, implementation, and evaluation of sensor network applications, middleware, and communication protocols are difficult time-consuming tasks. The purpose of the SensTOOLS is to provide both software and hardware toolboxes in order to offer the developer appropriate tools and methods for designing, testing and managing his/her large scale wireless sensor network applications.
