—The paper presents the WSN-PN tool, which aims at modelling and verifying Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) using Petri nets (PN). Especially, WSN-PN allows for congestion detection on a WSN setting. Moreover, WSN-PN supports users to abstract components, which can be either sensors or channels, on the verified PN. This abstraction is possible due to the observation that in a practical situation, a reason that causes a WSN to be congested is only depending on either sensors or channels. As a result, once abstracted properly, the verification speed is improved significantly, as illustrated in our experiments.
