Wireless Sensors

Wireless sensor networks consist of spatially distributed autonomous sensors to cooperatively monitor physical or environmental conditions (for example, temperature, sound, vibration, pressure, motion or pollutants).

Applications for wireless sensor networks are varied, typically involving some kind of monitoring, tracking, or controlling using, for example, WirelessHart, ZigBee and LoRa. Specific applications include habitat monitoring, object tracking, nuclear reactor control, fire detection, and traffic monitoring.

WinProp covers the following simulation aspects:
  • Connectivity between the sensor nodes of the wireless network.
  • Channel assignment in a self-organizing sensor network.
  • Determination of optimum paths between sensor and gateway nodes taking into account different criteria, such as best SNIR, minimum path delay.
