WINTeR is an open access, multi-user experimental facility which supports implementation and evaluation of wireless sensor networks for industrial applications in radio-harsh environments. An important new characteristic of the testbed is its ability to incorporate built-in and user generated dynamical models of industrial processes. This allows researchers to inexpensively and realistically evaluate wireless technologies, topologies and other variables in the context of different closed-loop dynamical systems. The present demo gives an overview of the testbed and introduces its real-time simulation abilities by utilizing three dynamical models of known processes with different response times. As two of a myriad of variables, the demonstration will show the effects of electromagnetic interference and topology in the response of such closed loop control systems.
