Automated Testing and Development of WSN Applications
Over the course of time the application range of Wireless Sensor Networks will become more varied and complex. A WSN may consist of several hundred sensor nodes, which are independent processing units equipped with various sensors and which communicate wirelessly. WSNs can be compared to wireless ad-hoc networks, but the sensor nodes are constrained by very limited resources and suit the purpose of collecting and processing sensory data. Therefore, it is increasingly important to programme it with the corresponding efficiency. Programming can become more productive and robust, if it is subject to a systematic and structured software development process, which enhances application and accommodates for the sensor network's operating conditions.
