Simulation of Urban Mobility (SUMO) in Ubuntu 12.04

This post will tell you how to install SUMO 0.12.3 version in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Also this post will tell you how to use MOVE for generating VANETs Simulation scenario.

OS Used: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (64 bit)
Sumo Version : 0.12.3
MOVE.jar (For this to work, Java runtime environment to be installed)
(Also MOVE.jar will support only SUMO 0.12.3). The latest version of SUMO (at the time of writing this post) is sumo 0.21.

Points to be noted:

  • Its always better to use the latest software, but to begin with SUMO needs XMl files are roads, edges, vehicle routes, etc. So MOVE.jar file is just helping in creating the xml files needed by SUMO. But the recent versions of SUMO (0.21) and etc, the XML files are to be generated manually by means of any external xml editors or simply using gedit or vim.
  • Also, the Ubuntu package manager comes default with sumo and sumo-gui command (that can be installed using the command sudo apt-get install sumo , but the python scripts like randomTrips.py, traceExporter.py etc may not work for creating the routes, vehicles, etc. So compiling from the source is the best option for  installing SUMO in Ubuntu.
Steps to install sumo-0.12.3 in Ubuntu 12.04
2. Download MOVE.jar from this location: http://lens1.csie.ncku.edu.tw/MOVE/download.php
2. Execute the following commands one by one 
$] sudo apt-get update
$] sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev default-jre g++-4.4 libproj-dev libgdal-dev libxerces-c2-dev libfox-1.6-dev
$] export CC=gcc-4.4 CXX=g++-4.4 
$] ./configure
$] make
$] sudo make install
See the screenshot below for successful installation of sumo and sumo-gui. Now you can create the simulations using MOVE and SUMO.

Installation of MOVE
MOVE is a software that runs using java run time and helpful in creating the xml files for SUMO. This can be running using the command 
$] java -jar MOVE.jar
Here is the screenshot of all the three windows for MOVE.

Thats all about the MOVE installation. My next post will be about the creation of xml files using MOVE and to generate traffic files for NS2.

Please pour in your comments for SUMO or MOVE installation. I have created a Virtual image OS for running the SUMO, MOVE and NS2 (if anybody wants the Virtual Image separately, contact me through the comment section or through google plus. I may send you the DVD by Courier after paying the nominal charges)

Installation of ns2 in Ubuntu 18.04 - NS2 Tutorial # 2

ns2 installation in Ubuntu 18.04

Unlike earlier version of ubuntu, the 18,04 version does not support the direct installation of ns2, because of the latest C/C++ compiler (7.x), but the latest C/C++ compiler supported by ns2 is gcc-4.8. So this post and video tells you about the installation of gcc-4.8 version, then ns2 and then configuration.
Here are the steps, Please follow the video given below for more information.

$] tar zxvf ns-allinone-2.35.tar.gz


$] sudo apt install gcc-4.8 g++-4.8

if you have installed ubuntu just now, you can try these commands also in the beginning

$] sudo apt update
$] sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev

$] cd ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35
$] gedit Makefile.in
$] gedit linkstate/ls.h

line number 137, change erase to this->erase
$] cd ..
$] ./install

export PATH=$PATH:/home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35/bin:/home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35/tcl8.5.10/unix:/home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35/tk8.5.10/unix

AWK Scripts for NS2 to process data from Trace Files

AWK Scripts are very good in processing the data from the log (trace files) which we get from NS2. If you want to process the trace file manually, here is the detailHere is a sample of trace file from NS2 (However ns2 supports a new type of trace file also), but this post will make you understand the old trace format only.r 0.030085562 _0_ MAC  --- 0 message 32 [0 ffffffff 1 800] ------- [1:255 -1:255 32 0] r 0.030110562 _0_ RTR  --- 0 message 32 [0 ffffffff 1 800] ------- [1:255 -1:255 32 0] s 1.119926192 _0_ RTR  --- 1 message 32 [0 0 0 0] ------- [0:255 -1:255 32 0]
AWK Scripts are very good in processing the data column wise. For example
the first column in the above trace file represents r, s which indicates receive, sent respectively. If we want to trace the entire r and s alone from this trace file we can represent it as $1
So
$1 represents ACTION
$2 Time
$3 Node ID
$4 Layer
$5 Flags
$6 seqno
$7 type
$8 Size
$14 Energy (if the network nodes includes EnergyModel)To run the awk script in Li…
