Abstract

Wireless sensor testbeds lack the flexibility for topology control and the accuracy for interference generation. Once the testbed is set up, the topology becomes fixed. Due to the nature of the wireless environment, experimenters often suffer from unpredictable background interference, while at the same time, find it hard to get accurate and repeatable interference sources.
