|In order to ease development and for simulation purposes, we have decided to port the ScatterWeb software to the ns-2 network simulator. Implemented as a layer of glue code, it allows for applications written against the ScatterWeb API to be run without changes on both the simulator and the real-world sensor nodes.
|As a first step, you need to download and install the ns-2. Instructions are available on their homepage, but you might want to follow our instructions to set up ns-2 on onea Linux operation system: README.ns-2.
|Patching ScatterWeb to run on ns-2:
Download the latest "ScatterWeb on ns-2" package. Since version 0.1 it includes all the documentation and patches. Follow the instructions in the package to run a ScatterWeb simulation on ns-2.
|Running ScatterWeb on ns-2:
For those only interested in the results, there are also a ns-2 trace and a nam trace (both gzipped) available which document how ns-2 is running the ScatterWeb implementation of the directed diffusion paradigm. A screenshot of nam playing back this ScatterWeb simulation is shown below. Finally, there are also two videos of the simulation.
This simulation software was written by a student at the FU-Berlin in 2008. The main goal of this software is to have a simulation tool that is easy to use and highly functional.
The main features are:
|Hardware to use with:
|any sensor nodes
