Interference modeling for 3D simulator of sensor networks dedicated to smart cities

Abstract : Most of WSNs use unlicensed Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) frequency band that makes interference probable phenomenon on a given channel.System throughput gets influenced by the interference as it can congest wireless medium, cause packet drops, re-transmissions, link instability, and inconsistent protocol behavior. In wireless sensor network research, simulation is one of the essential approaches to asses and evaluate system or protocol performance. The accuracy of estimated results depends on selected simulation parameters. In existing analysis on WSN, simple interference models are used in simulations. However, these interference models are not accurate enough for practical wireless sensor network applications analysis.Moreover, the rapid growth in the field of WSNs entails the need of creating new simulators that have more specific capabilities to tackle interference and multipath propagation effects.Finding a suitable simulation environment that allows researchers to verify new ideas and compare proposed future solutions is main task of this research.
