Towards Reproducible Wireless Experiments Using R2lab

Abstract : Reproducibility is key in designing wireless systems and evaluating their performance. Trying to reproduce wireless experiments allowed us to identify some pitfalls and possible ways to simplify the complex task of avoiding them. In this paper, we expose a few considerations that we learned are instrumental for ensuring the reproducibility of wireless experiments. Œen we describe the steps we have taken to make our experiments easy to reproduce. We speci€cally address issues related to wireless hardware, as well as varying propagation channel conditions. We show that extensive knowledge of the used hardware and of its design is required to guarantee that the inner state of the system has no negative impact on performance evaluation and experimental results. As for variability of channel conditions, we make the case that a special setup or testbed is necessary so that one can control the ambient wireless propagation environment, using for instance, an anechoic chamber like R2lab.
