The GINSENG project develops performance-controlled wireless sensor networks that can be used for time-critical applications in hostile environments such as industrial plant automation and control. GINSENG aims at integrating wireless sensor networks with existing enterprise resource management solutions using a middleware. A cornerstone is the evaluation in a challenging industrial environment — an oil refinery in Portugal. In this paper we first present our testbed. Then we introduce our solution to access, debug and flash the
sensor nodes remotely from an operations room in the plant or from any location with Internet access. We further present our experimental methodology and show some exemplary results from the refinery testbed.
