TWIN - The flexible Testbed

TWIN is a novel platform for Sensor Network Testbeds. In contrast to other approaches, TWIN allows the following:

  • No adaptations required: Use the normal applications and hardware you are using for your real world deployments.
  • Battery powered and isolation possible: Most sensor nodes used in traditional testbeds use a stabilized power source like USB. In TWIN, the sensor nodes operate on Battery power which results into a more realistic behaviour compared to other testbeds.
  • Flexible placement: The backbone of TWIN is wireless. This results into flexible placement of the single nodes.
  • No infrastructure required: As the backbone is realized using wireless technologies, no Ethernet or USB cables are required. The only required thing is a power source like a wall socket.

We will publish additional information about TWIN soon.
