Modeling and distributed simulation of mobile ad hoc networks

Andrzej Sikora

Abstract

Modeling and simulation are traditional methods used to evaluate computer networks design. This dissertation addresses issues associated with modeling, simulation and application of wireless, mobile, and ad-hoc networks (MANETs). Mobile self-organizing ad hoc networks can significantly enhance the capability to coordinate the emergency actions as well as monitor contaminated areas, explore unmanned space, inspect and control working environments. Due to the inherent complexity of these systems, the development of applications relying on mobile network nodes and wireless communication protocols would be greatly simplified by the use of specific tools for supporting testing and performance evaluation. Modeling and simulation are widely used in the design and development of wireless ad hoc networks. In this dissertation a mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is modeled using discrete event systems methodology (DEVS). The focus is on wireless transmission and mobility models. A novel algorithm for efficient calculating of motion trajectories for wireless devices is introduced. Particular attention is paid to software environments for parallel and distributed simulation of mobile ad hoc networks. The functionality of Java-based simulation tools (ASim/Java and MobASim) developed by the autor are described. The practical case studies are provided to illustrate the operation and performance of the presented software. ix
