Wireless Sensor Networks Simulation?

Hi dear Lady/Sir:


 I'm trying to simulate my new algorithm in 'Routing' in 'Wireless-Sensor-Networks'(WSN).

I'm really confused that what method/software/simulator must be chosen to do this.


Please help me in selecting the best choice:

1) NS3 (new version of NS2)

2) OMnet++ &[ Castalia and/or Avrora ]


4) TOSsim &[TinyOS]






10)WSNsim &[wirelessHART]

11) [...you tel me please, if any other 'simulator/framework' is exist?...]


I like to chose the #(10)WSNsim &[wirelessHART], because this one is under 'Windows-OS/C#.Net' technology, do you have any suggestions?

Is my choice is good? or you suggest which simulator?

Is it possible to write mathematical formula that I do in MATLAB in C# too? or can I export my MATLAB '.m'file with Shared-MATLAB-Library to C# then I use the formula/algorithm-code in C#.Net ?

Do you suggest a better way? Please describe the best choice for realistic result for enterprises usage of the algorithm with high accuracy.


Best regards,

Hi Alex,


What type of hardware are you currently using?  What hardware are you expecting to use?  I'm not too familiar with all of the software that you listed, but with any programming language, such as C#, you can implement algorithms.  It may take more work depending on if you have to rewrite some functions that the simulators already incorporate.

Hi dear 'Che T',


Thanks for your reply.


This is asoftware simulation, no hardware needed. As it pass evaluation test, then can be implemented in the hardware systems.

I think the OPnet have some softwares for this.

Do you think that OPnet is best selection? (www.opnet.com)


Best regards,

Can I have any tool/Library available with LabVIEW with which I can simulate WSN?

Hey hranjbaran,


Can you provide more information on the issue you are having?


I'm also not sure this is the right place for your question. This forum post is quite old and you will get more visibility of your question if you make a new forum post. 


Additionally, your link does not lead to any useful information seeing as how we cannot sign in to see the manual on that site.
