    A Model to Improve the Accuracy of WSN Simulations

    Simulation studies have been extensively adopted in the networking research community. Nevertheless, the performance of the software components running within the network devices is often not modeled by generic network simulators. This aspect is particularly important in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). As motes present very limited computing resources, the overhead...
