TestbedProfiler v2: An Improved Validation Tool for Wireless Sensor Network Testbed Deployment
A key aspect of deploying a wireless sensor network (WSN) is understanding the degree of connectivity between the individual nodes that comprise the network. Towards that end, we present the second incarnation of TestbedProfiler, an application suite designed to aid the installation and improvement of WSN testbeds by revealing the characteristics of their underlying connections. Such knowledge allows node placement to be optimized to best fit the needs of a specific application. Originally developed with the capacity to evaluate network connectivity and performance based on transmission power ...
