The w-iLab.t is a large-scale generic wireless experimentation facility. Two locations are equipped with in total over 260 wireless nodes. In the w-iLab.t Zwijnaarde location mobile nodes are hosted. The mobile nodes are mounted on top of robots, of which the movement can be fully controlled by the experimenter. Due to a high accuracy positioning algorithm, the exact position of the robots is known at all time during the experiments. This enables us to provide repeatable and controlled mobile experiments to our users.
