Distributed Sensor Processing Over an Ad Hoc Wireless Network: Simulation Framework and Performance Criteria

Published

Author(s)

R E. Van Dyck, Leonard E. Miller

Abstract

The evaluation of existing and future distributed sensor processing system concepts can be done well using simulation, provided that the simulation is faithful in representing both the medium in which the sensors interface with the phenomena that they measure or detect and the medium in which the sensors interface with each other to achieve a distributed mode of operation. In this paper, performance criteria for distributed sensor processing over ad hoc wireless networks are stated and an architecture for analysis and simulation of this kind of system is described.
