In this paper, the authors present their testbed SANDbed for wireless sensor actuator networks. In contrast to many existing testbed approaches for WSANs they concentrate their research on highly quantized and resolutive distributed energy monitoring in WSANs as well as on flexible management protocols for this kind of testbeds. Therefore, the management software is being designed to support any sensor node platform and also any testbed topology. The research cooperation ZeuS is a project investigating the basic principles of reliable communication in Wireless Sensor Actuator Networks (WSAN).
