HyperVerse: Simulation and Testbed Reconciled

Free registration required

Executive Summary

When dealing with dynamic large-scale topologies such as those underlying Peer-To-Peer (P2P) Distributed Virtual Environments (DVE), one inescapably reaches the point where either simulations lack human behavior and assessment or where practical experiments on a small scale do not yield significant results. The restrictions resulting from the separation of simulation and testbed environments hinder a comprehensive assessment and efficient development of adaptive algorithms and techniques for DVEs as they are investigated in the HyperVerse research project. In this paper, the authors present a hybrid evaluation system designed to combine the advantages of simulations and testbeds.
