Summary:
Wireless sensor networks are one of the first real world examples of pervasive computing, the notion that small, smart, and cheap sensing and computing devices will eventually permeate the environment. Sensor networks consist of very large number of energy constrained nodes and to properly evaluate these networks a scalable ad-hoc wireless network simulator with an energy model is needed. Since most of the existing simulators have been designed for ad-hoc network with low scalability they can not be used to accurately simulate sensor networks. The JiST/SWANS simulator is one of the newer simulators that has been developed by Cornell University for simulating ad-hoc networks and is highly scalable which makes it appropriate for use in evaluating sensor networks. Since this simulator lack energy model our objective is to design and implement an energy model for JiST/SWANS so that it can adequately and accurately calculate the amount of energy consumption in the simulation of sensor networks.
