Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have large applications in environments where access to human cannot be constant or where reliable and timely information is required to support decisions. WSNs must show high reliability, robustness, availability of information, monitoring capabilities, self-organization, among other aspects. Also, engineering requirements, such as low-cost implementation, operation, and maintenance are necessary. In this context, a simulator is a powerful tool for analyzing and improving network technologies used as a first step to investigate protocol design and performance test on large-scale systems without the need of real implementation. In this paper, we present a Configurable Multi-Layer WSN (CML-WSN) simulator. The CML-WSN simulator incorporates a configurable energy model to support any sensor specification as a one of its main features. The CML-WSN simulator is useful because it allows exploring prototypes with much less cost and time compared to the requirements needed in real networks implementations.
