“Improving NS-2 Network Simulator To Evaluate IEEE 802.15.4 Wireless Networks Under Error Conditions”
in Proceedings of the 3th International Conference on Sensor Networks (SENSORNETS), Lisbon, Portugal, Jan. 2014, pp. 212–220.
Abstract: The behaviour of wireless networks in the presence of error conditions is still being studied by the research community. Improvements on the evaluation methods and tools are crucial to acquire a better knowledge, and understanding of the network operation under such conditions. This paper presents enhancements on the network simulator NS-2 to support the evaluation of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard, used as a case study. We are specially interested to evaluate the temporal behaviour of the network operation under errors conditions, considering the applicability of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard in safety-critical environments such as industrial and vehicular.
