  • In this work we address the challenges arising when developing, testing and deploying software for Wireless Sensor Networks. We investigate both pre-deployment software design, as well as efficient post-deployment updates. We present a combined pre-deployment framework that simulates the network as it would be deployed to help in the testing, evaluation and fine-tuning of the system. Additionally, we address the need for post-deployment remote updates of the running code in an efficient and reliable manner. We also describe a real-world application that has motivated our work: the Smart Condo™ project, a system for monitoring patient activities in assisted living environments.
