Abstract

Simulation and emulation are techniques frequently used for performance evaluation of wireless multi-hop networks. If the wireless devices are mobile, the movement patterns of these objects are found to have significant impact on the simulation and emulation results. This is quite obvious as the movements influence the topology of the network. In this paper we describe and present BonnMotion. Bonn- Motion is an open-source Java software which creates and analyzes mobility scenarios. It has been developed at the University of Bonn, Germany, where it serves as a tool for the investigation of mobile multi-hop network scenario characteristics. The scenarios can also be exported for the network simulators ns-2, GloMoSim/QualNet, COOJA, and MiXiM.
