SimX: An Integrated Sensor Network Simulation and Evaluation Environment

Free registration required

Executive Summary

It is well known that designing, testing and debugging sensor networks are extremely hard. It is mainly due to limited resources and distributed natures of sensor networks. In a lab environment, it is difficult and tedious to try various network configurations and simulate various challenging environment factors. Thereafter, the sensor network community has longed for a good sensor network simulation tool allowing the philosophy of WYSIWYG: What You See Is What You Get. In this paper, the authors present the design and evaluation of a visualized network manipulation tool integrated with TOSSIM and TOSSIM Live, called SimX.
