Abstract

Whilst the physical design and instrumentation of ad-hoc wireless sensor networks (WSNs) has recently received a lot of attention, it is often assumed that the system software for such devices will simply copy the design of software for larger, fixed, context-ignorant computers. We believe that this lack of experimentation is not conducive to developing optimal architectures and services for WSNs. In this paper we present SenSor: a simulation tool which facilitates experimentation with novel software architectures, by enabling a top-down approach to software design. This is in contrast with other simulation tools which offer a way to validate code for a particular hardware platform. We describe the top-down design method which SenSor facilitates with examples.
