Software and Tools

Wireless Sensor Network Testbed - related

Testbed Runtime WISEBED Wireless Sensor Network Testbed Infrastructure Software
WiseGui Browser-based graphical front end for SmartSantander / WISEBED testbeds, completely implemented on client-side using HTML5, JavaScript and WebSockets.
wisebed.js wisebed.js is a JavaScript-based client library that builds upon the REST API defined for the newest version of the WISEBED backend system Testbed Runtime. It uses HTTP requests/responses for most management operations and the WebSocket for communication with the sensor nodes serial port.
wisebed.js-scripts wisebed.js-scripts is a collection of command-line scripts built upon wisebed.js, offering the same (and a bit more) functionality than the well-known but nowadays technically outdated experimentation-scripts.
WSN Device Drivers RXTX-/Java-based implementation of device drivers for sensor networks, used in Testbed Runtime.
WSN Device Utils Command line utils based for the WSN Device Drivers
SpyGlass A modular and extensible visualization framework for wireless sensor networks

Generic Tools and Libraries

Service Publisher A small easy-to-use helper library to run an embedded HTTP server able to host WebSockets, JAX-RS and JAX-WS web services.
Netty IOStream Support for classic I/O Streams for Netty
Netty RXTX Support for RXTX-attached serial devices for Netty
Netty Protocols A set of Netty-based encoders/decoders, used in Testbed Runtime.
ITM Utils All kinds of utility classes used in various development projects of the Institute of Telematics
