Networks of wireless sensors are notoriously difficult to experiment with. Testbeds became the experimenter's tool of choice. However, some of potential sensor network applications require the scales that are difficult to achieve on a testbed. Simulation may be a possible substitute. Yet, the radio propagation patterns of low-power radios used by wireless sensors are difficult to model with high fidelity. The errors that the simulation introduces compound at large scale rendering the results suspect. We propose to a combined approach where radio communication between wireless sensor nodes on a testbed is used in real-time to boost the fidelity of large scale simulation. In this thesis we present a series of experiments that demonstrate the viability and evaluate the efficiency of this approach.
