A vital factor for a successful deployment of sensor nodes is testing of all system aspects in a realistic setup. This work presents a testbed architecture which allows for detailed monitoring and stimulation of a wireless sensor node. In particular, time-accurate state extraction and power measurements are provided in a distributed, yet synchronized(More)
Wireless Sensor Network applications require dependable platforms that deliver correct and reliable operation over long periods. However, application characterization and exact system requirements specification can be complicated due to unknown environmental factors and system limitations. In this demo abstract we present a new approach to design space(More)
—Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are becoming widely used in scientific applications as they allow for instru-menting the environment in previously impossible ways revealing unprecedented insight and detailed data. Long term monitoring of environmental processes and the harsh reality of remote and inaccessible terrain demand longevity from such WSN(More)
Sensor networks deployed in remote locations require easy to use but also extremely expressive tools for reliable operation. The PermaSense project has developed a platform based on a number of proven COTS components and integrated with the GSN based data backend. All tools are accessible from a single location in a web browser. This demo will present the(More)
