Wireless Sensor Network Simulation Frameworks: A Tutorial Review: MATLAB/Simulink bests the rest.


A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a distributed set of sensors deployed to work together for collective sensing and possible data processing. A WSN can be used to monitor environmental behavior and structural integrity in a variety of application fields, thus becoming an integral part of the consumer electronics of smart buildings in smart cities. Due to ever-increasing population growth, along with limited natural resources, smart cities are expected to be the wave of the future. For instance, WSNs are widely used in industrial settings with machine monitoring and play an important role in monitoring the structural integrity of large buildings and bridges. This article focuses on existing WSNsimulation frameworks that could be integrated with realtime hardware prototypes. We analyze and compare various such simulation frameworks, and we determine a suitable simulation environment that supports specific software packages.
