Lille testbed is deployed at a building scale, over the three floors of our Inria building, through offices, corridors, meeting or storage rooms, in addition to the original room. The deployment zones over the building are marked in blue in the figure above.
The latter is a 225 m2 area, composed of a corridor separating a big room and 5 offices (respectively on left and right in topology figures). In this room, nodes are dispatched over the ceiling and wood poles, situated at the borders of the big room.

  • Nodes on ceiling are dispatched in staggered rows over a 1.20 m x 1.20 m grid, at an overall high of 9.6 m.
  • Nodes on poles are vertically hanged at an overall high of 7.60, 8.50 and 9.40 m.
  • The floor is dedicated to a fleet of robots providing mobile nodes.
