Wireless Sensor networks are gaining a role of importance in the research community. In this paper, we choose Imote2 to establish our testbed according to the analysis and the comparison of the hardware capabilities and software characteristics of the current WSNs products. Moreover, we present our hardware, software platforms and “30 motes” testbed to validate and evaluate our Fully Integrated Scheme of self-Configuration and self-Organization (FISCO) while further propose the rudiment of our general routing and data dissemination testbed. In the test stage, experimental results show that each mote in the network obtains the corresponding role and takes correct actions to handle every receiving message.
