Map-Based Modeling and Design of Wireless Sensor Networks With OMNeT++
Source: Technische Universitat Darmstadt
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are receiving growing attention in the research community. As simulation is a frequently used approach to test and validate approaches, simulation environments need to be able to support the various WSN design schemes. Though the research trend in WSN is to address regions instead of single sensor nodes, existing WSN simulation environments still do not support modeling and design on this abstraction level. In this context, the authors propose MAP++ as a framework that extends the OMNeT++ network simulator. It provides a suite of tools needed to support WSN simulations. In particular, MAP++ supports map-based topology and scenario generation and evaluation.
