- support for full system and environment simulation
- support for energy consumption simulation
- support for nodes advanced debuging modes
- support for high level performance estimations
Writing distributed WSN applications using the Worldsens toolkit is far easier than using prototype boards due to the fast compile/debug/estimate development cycle. This performance estimation is made possible using a full platform simulation at a cycle accurate level. Peripherals that deal with real time constraints (timers, interrupts, serial ports, radio interface, etc.) are included in the WSim platform model. Time is given in a cycle accurate manner using application instruction timing.
WSim should compile and run on any Unix-like platform and Windows using cygwin or mingw32.
