"EuWIn@UniBo in Bologna, Italy"

Bologna, Italy


The EuWin@UNIBO site provides more than 200 wireless nodes implementing different types of radio interfaces, and deployed according to the following platforms: 

Flexible Topology Testbed (FLEXTOP) – 100 nodes equipped with IEEE 802.15.4 radios distributed inside the lab creating an open and flexible platform for emulating several types of network topologies, achieved through proper software setting of the inter-node losses. This platform is based on over-the-air (OTA) implementation of software, meaning that NEWCOM# partners will be given remote access to implement the software;

Data Sensing and Processing Testbed (DATASENS) – An infrastructure of approximately 100 nodes using IEEE 802.15.4 radios deployed inside one of the University buildings, in rooms and corridors, implementing sensors able to monitor/emulate physical instances like light intensity, temperature, current drain, equipped with small LCD screens that will ease the management and control of application tasks. In addition to the nodes composing the fixed infrastructure, approximately 50 battery-supplied mobile nodes (with 802.15.4 devices) carried by people moving around, are part of the testbeds (Roaming Nodes); 

Localization Testbed (LOCTEST) - Approximately 50 additional nodes with high-accuracy localization capabilities, using IEEE 802.15.4a or IEEE 802.15.4f Ultra-Wide Bandwidth (UWB) radios, will be deployed in the same building depending on the future commercial availability of low-cost UWB-based devices;

The infrastructure also includes some network coordination nodes equipped with mini-PC boards and different types of gateways (WLAN, LAN) for proper interconnection to the Internet.


This laboratory is supported by the European Commission in the framework of the FP7 Network of Excellence in Wireless COMmunications NEWCOM# (Grant agreement no. 318306).
