For designing a wireless network, field test is mostly preferred for researchers to test and evaluate the system performance. However, it is expensive for field constructions and thus it is not affordable for most researchers. Software simulation is another option. However, the results by simulation may be undesirably biased away the true. This paper proposes a new method to trade off between resource consumption and test veracity, which constructs a hardware-in-loop simulation platform by integrating theoretic computation, computer simulation and hardware-based test. This platform can be used to verify wireless networking technologies, while resource is reduced greatly at the same time.
