This chapter introduces the design for deployment process, emphasizing the importance of gathering application requirements, applying a sound testing strategy and debriefing post-deployment. A set of key WSN design parameters are identified and explained in the context of the real deployments described in Part II. A case is made for deploying iteratively, as a method of progressively refining the system to best meet requirements. Finally, a selection of key lessons are drawn from the experience represented by the deployment case studies.
