WSnet is a wireless sensor network simulator that was designed to offer the following features:
a modular, flexible and accurate simulation of the radio physical medium;
support for the simulation of environmental phenomena;
support for interaction between nodes and their environment (sensor-actuator architecture);
interconnection with the sensor platform emulator WSim to support the distributed emulation of wireless sensor networks.
WSNet is currently in its second release. The number of WSNet users is still growing and several research works reference the software. Many pointers can be found on the project website. Maintenance and support of the software is handled by the D-NET project but also by several contributors from the CITI laboratory (INSA de Lyon), Orange R&D. The WSNet community is quietly spreading in France as well as abroad.
