Abstract

In this study, we performed a simulation of mobile agents running on Agilla middleware designed for sensor networks. The simulations are performed using TOSSIM assuming that Agilla middleware is installed on the sensor nodes which are running TinyOS operating system. We simulated different agents corresponding to various functions and measured the time it takes for these agent software to run in the simulated environment and compared these results with those obtained using actual sensor nodes. The results presented in the study show that simulations produce results comparable to real life experiments.
