The MI test-beds. A first testbed has been deployed in MI Welcome Centre. For security reasons, MI had to close its Welcome Centre by the end of 2012. MI deployed two additional test beds in its research Lab at the University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland, as well as in an office space near the UN with a meeting area and several work stations. Those two test beds will be maintained beyond the end of the HOBNET research project and will be used among others by the EAR-IT FP7 research project. The testbeds have enabled MI to assess the technologies developed from an end-user perspective by implementing and testing 10 out of the 12 selected use cases. Here follow a summarized description of the test-bed deployment. More detailed description are available in the respective deliverables.

The CTI test-bed. Apart from the already existing smart room, CTI testbed has been scaled out to 21 motes deployed over 7 offices at the premises of our building. The motes are organized in a mesh topology and communicate with the main server of the testbed via multihop data propagation. We would like to note that several of these additional motes are running Contiki OS; therefore the testbed consists of sensor motes running both TinyOS and Contiki. The testbed has also been upgraded from CoAP-03 to CoAP-12 while additional virtual resources have been implemented (i.e. average/min/max temperature and humidity) that combine readings from multiple sensors in order to provide a more abstract piece of information.

The UNIGE test-bed. The testbed comprised of 20 TelosB motes is a fixed network running IPv6/6LoWPAN and COAP protocols. Some motes are used as mobile motes for measuring temperature and humidity in different places of our testbed. Specified scenarios defined in the WP1 have been implemented in the testbed such as: Local adaptation to presence, energy management (partially), electric device monitoring (partially), maintenance control (partially), user centric environment customization and mobile phone ID. The topology of the network is shown in the picture below. With a star symbol is represented a mote which acts as a sensor and with a cross a mote which acts as an actuator connected to an electronic device.
