WiSE-MNet: An Experimental Environment for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
The authors propose a simulation environment for networks for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs), i.e. networks with sensors capturing complex vectorial data, such as for example video and audio. The proposed simulation environment allows one to model the communication layers, the sensing and distributed applications of a WMSN. This Wireless Simulation Environment for Multimedia Networks (WiSE-MNet) is based on Castalia/Omnet++ and is available as open source to the research community. The environment is designed to be flexible and extensible, and has a simple camera model that enables the simulation of distributed computer-vision algorithms at a high level of abstraction.
