EXtensible Animator for Mobile Simulations: EXAMS

Free registration required

Executive Summary

One of the most widely used simulation environments for mobile wireless networks is the Network Simulator 2 (NS-2). However NS-2 stores its outcome in a text file, so there is a need for a visualization tool to animate the simulation of the wireless network. The purpose of this tool is to help the researcher examine in detail how the wireless protocol works both on a network and a node basis. It is clear that much of this information is protocol dependent and cannot be depicted properly by a general purpose animation process. Existing animation tools do not provide this level of information neither permit the specific protocol to control the animation at all.
