Hence, the simulation of virtual WSN, the visualization of real testbed, and the interaction between simulated WSN and testbed emerge as three key challenges.
In this paper, we present an integrated framework called Net Topo for providing both simulation and visualization functions to assist the investigation of algorithms in WSNs.

Manfred Hauswirth is Vice-Director of the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), Galway, Ireland and professor at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG). Prior to his work at EPFL he was an assistant professor at the Distributed Systems Group at the TU Vienna.
He implemented a new open source WSNs simulator & visualizer: Net Topo. His main research interests are on semantic sensor networks, sensor networks middleware, large-scale semantics-enabled distributed information systems and applications, peer-to-peer systems, Internet of things, self-organization and self-management, Semantic Web services, and distributed systems security.
He received the Best Paper Award in the IEEE AINA07. 2006, he works with Simula Research Laboratory, Norway.
