Castalia 2.2 released
Castalia 2.2 was released on 14-8-2009. It implements most core features of the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC protocol that are relevant to Body Area Networks (i.e.,
single hop PANs with coordinator and beacons). Castalia 2.2 is a simulator for wireless sensor networks (WSNs), and it requires OMNeT++ 3.x.
Do we know about your papers?
As you may have noticed, we have recently expanded our Publications database. First of all, it should now contain nearly all OMNeT++-related papers, from the beginnings until a few months ago -- presently over 400 entries! The database can be searched and filtered by words that occur in the title, authors, keywords, year, or abstract (yes, we store the abstracts as well, for better search results!). We have also added convenient "Web link" and "Search web for title" functions, so that you can find a copy and start reading as fast as possible. Entries are stored (and can exported) in BibTeX format.
Please help us make this database a useful reference! Check if it contains your papers, and if not, submit them. We are mostly interested in last years and earlier papers, because we'll periodically add the new ones by skimming various online databases anyway.
Announcement: oTWLAN – a tool to simulate tactical ad-hoc networks
oTWLAN models a wireless ad-hoc network, which supports multi-level
precedence and preemption (MLPP) over a DSSS radio. This open source project
facilitates throughput/delay performance study through a GUI based user
interface. oTWLAN has many
similar characteristics to WLAN (IEEE 802.11) but also provides a 100kbps radio
channel for enlarged radio coverage, relaying of traffic for increased service
coverage area and priority handling of user traffic. The latter is especially
important for military and emergency network. The simulator has been developed
within the GOSIKT project at the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment where
we study the performance of PKI over tactical ad-hoc networks. Chapter 2 in the
user manual included in this open source project illustrates the usage of the
simulator while other chapters describe the network protocols implemented.
The Communication Networks and Systems Lab at SICS is happy to announce version 0.9 of the Energy Framework.
The Energy Framework is a collection of modules that allows flexible and extensible modeling of battery consumption of wireless devices. It currently uses OMNET++-3 and mobility-fw2.0p3,but is intended to be relatively framework independent. Code is available at http://www.sics.se/nets/software.
