Commotion runs on multiple software and hardware platforms: Embedded routers, smart phones, desktops and laptops, and open source GSM basestations. Development on each of these platforms occurs in parallel. Where possible, a common set of tools are used to develop Commotion, no matter the platform. However, there are certain platforms where unique tools are required.

All Commotion platforms share a common core: a shared network medium (usually ad-hoc Wifi, known as IBSS) and an IP routing protocol (OLSRd). Read more about the Commotion architecture and how it varies across platforms on the Developer Wiki.
Commotion developers rely on a combination of tools, experience, and intuition to debug. We use gdb, ddms and unit testing. Read more about our testing procedures and methodologies and procedures for lab testing on the Developer Wiki.
