It is a multi-agent and discrete event Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) simulator. Networks can be designed and prototyped in an ergonomic user-friendly interface using the OpenStreetMap (OSM) framework by deploying sensors directly on the map. It can be used to study the behaviour of a network and its costs. The main objectives of CupCarbon are both educational and scientific. It can help trainers to explain the basic concepts and how sensor networks work and it can help scientists to test their wireless topologies, protocols, etc. The current version can be used only to study the power diagram of each sensor and the overall network. The power diagrams can be calculated and displayed as a function of the simulated time. Prototyping networks is more realistic compared to existing simulators.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Institute for Computer Science, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (ICST)||Keywords:||Machine learning;Statistics;Wireless sensor networks;Simulator;Multi-agent system;Discrete event simulation;OpenStreetMap;Mobility||DOI:||10.4108/icst.simutools.2014.254811||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Proceedings of the 7th International ICST Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques||Conference Details:||7th International ICST Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques, Lisbon, Portugal, 17-19 March 2014|
