Application Development


Build cross-platform, highly efficient WSN applications using the Wiselib C++ template-based algorithm library!

Build highly dynamic component oriented applications using GNU C based on Lorien OS.

Simulate your experiments using Shawn - a WISEBED-compatible sensor network simulator.

Get the full toolchain in a preconfigured Virtual Machine to get started right away...

Run your own Testbed


Run your own personal desktop testbed, debug and evaluate your application at your desk before deploying to the WISEBED testbeds.

Deploy your own (private) large or small scale testbed.

Integrate your testbed into the WISEBED federation to let other users run their experiments on your hardware and deployment!

Show me how...



The WISEBED project is a joint effort of nine academic and research institutes across Europe aiming to provide a multi-level infrastracture of interconnected testbeds of largescale wireless sensor networks for research purposes, pursuing an interdisciplinary approach that integrates the aspects of hardware, software, algorithms, and data.
