Executive Summary

The successful deployment of a wireless sensor network is a difficult task, littered with traps and pitfalls. Even a functional network does not guarantee gathering meaningful data. In SensorScope, with its multiple campaigns in various environments (e.g., urban, high-mountain), the authors have acquired much knowledge in planning, conducting, and managing real-world sensor network deployments. In this paper, they share their experience by stepping through the entire process, from the preparatory hard- and software development to the actual field deployment. Illustrated by numerous real-life examples, excerpted from their own experience, they point out many potential problems along this way and their possible solutions.
