Testbed environments

Laboratory environment

Testbeds as laboratories, where individual functions/abilities in different technologies can be tested in a controlled environment.

Examples of such environments are specialized labs at research institutes, universities and private companies. They are characterized by focusing on tests of single functions and prestanda, and not on tests of full systems in real life conditions.

Simulated environment

Testbeds as simulated user environments for tests/demonstration on a system level of products, services or processes.

One example within this category is separated test tracks for winter driving in northern Sweden. A common feature is that the testbed enables tests on a system, process and product level and that the test environment offers/simulates as real life like conditions as possible.

Real environment

Testbeds as real user environments where technology is tested in and by the activity or organisation where the technology or process is aimed to be used.

Examples from this category are tests of new waste management systems in housing areas, trying new organic goods in existing production processes, tests of different eco system services or transport solutions in specific city districts.
