With recent advancement in wireless sensor technologies, IoT and WSAN applications have emerged and new algorithms and protocols have been proposed. Many simulations have been conducted to test these new protocols and algorithms. However in order to verify the new protocols and algorithms in real experiments, we designed an adhoc testbed, where we plan to conduct experiments for IoT and WSAN applications. In this paper we describe our testbed and show some results, while investigating the performance of the network for different packet sizes.
