We present TestbedProfiler, a wireless sensor network application suite developed to help guide the installation of WSN testbeds. TestbedProfiler can be used to assist the deployment of a WSN testbed by evaluating proposed mote locations in terms of connectivity and signal strength. We developed TestbedProfiler and used it to evaluate the Casino Lab and the Edgar Mine testbeds owned by the Colorado School of Mines. We found TestbedProfiler to be instrumental in understanding how the motes communicate and how the testbeds could be improved. We believe that TestbedProfiler can improve testbed deployments, leading to improved real-life wireless sensor network applications.
