Abstract

In this paper, we propose a simulation environment for home network systems. The simulation environment consists of real houses, large-scale simulation testbeds and many simulation components such as environment, home appliances, electric power and human activity. These home simulations can install simulation components with different complexities. It enables the simulation to scale up the number of home on testbeds with limited nodes. As one of the results of the physical environment simulation, we compare the temperature measured in a real environment against that of a simulated. By being executed on large-scale testbeds and cooperating with real houses, the simulation achieves large-scale, realistic and real-time simulation of home network services, such as evaluating effects of an energy consumption service for a city of ten thousands households.
