Experimentation infrastructures for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been widely adopted over the past decade for hi-fidelity validation and rapid prototyping of applications and for discovering and modeling phenomena that have led to improvements in analysis and simulation capabilities. Nonetheless, the community is still looking for more heterogeneous WSN testbeds for purposes such as federation, experiment regression analysis, and improved testbed availability. In addition, most existing WSN testbeds lack robustness and predictability in the presence of failures, and they do not provide user-friendly support for scientific experimentation (e.g., quick repetition of experiments).
