Recent advances in microelectromechanical systems and VLSI lithography have enabled the miniaturization of sensors and controllers. Such minitiarization facilitates the deployment of large-scale wireless sensor networks (WSNs). However, the considerable cost of deploying and maintaining large-scale WSNs for experimental purposes makes simulation useful in developing dependable and portable WSN applications. SENS is a customizable sensor network simulator for WSN applications, consisting of… Expand
