Software simulator for Decawave WSN

Hi everyone,

I’m using DWM1001-Dev and custom firmware on it. I wish to do some MAC layer experiment and would like to ask if there’s any simulation software that best suits Decawave products before I step into one of them. Ideally, I’d like to have the flexibility of defining each node’s behaviours similar to writing a firmware for DWM1001, but have a global picture with exact timings of what’s going on in the network. It’s even better if it has localization/ranging functions as well. Any suggestion is much appreciated!

Thank you,

Hi jleng,
did you find a suitable simulator?

I did use omnet++ together with the INET library

The INET library implements the IEEE 802.15.4 specification but provides no localization/ranging functions. So you have to implement this by yourself.


Hi Thorbjoern,

Thank you for the reply. I was about to go with ns2/ns3. But I’ll certainly take a look at omnet++ and then make the final decision.
