TItle: Scalable Simulation Framework for Sensor Networks
Description: Sensor networks are in wide spread use and with deployements reaching larger numbers, the need for a scalable simulation framework is becoming apparent. sQualnet provides this simulation framework. sQualnet, a scalable, extensible sensor network simulation framework, is built on top of commerically available state-of-the-art network simulator, Qualnet. sQualnet introduces a sensor stack parallel to the networking stack and provides accurate simulation models for various layers in the sensor and networking stack. It also includes a detailed and accurate power model. The sQualnet framework allows for hybrid testbeds by combining simulated nodes with real nodes.
