SUMO and MOVE Example Traffic Simulation


This post will show you the example of SUMO and MOVE using the Ubuntu 12.04 (64bit) operating system.

Requirements:
  • MOVE.jar (This software will work only with sumo version 0.12.3).
  • SUMO (0.12.3)  
  • jdk (To run MOVE)
The command to run MOVE.jar is
$] java -jar MOVE.jar

Here is the screenshot of all the images.
My Own Road with Traffic Signals

 The above diagram shows there are 6 junctions (0 to 5) and the Traffic signals are at 1,2,4 and 5. There are roads connecting the junctions. Each Road has two lanes named R for Right, L for Left, U for Up and D for down.
R12 indicates a lane from 1 to 2 and L12 indicates 2 to 1

To create simulation using MOVE, The following options in MOVE.jar have to be implemented. 
  •  Mobility Model
    • Node (file.nod.xml)
    • Edge (file.edge.xml)
    • Configuration (file.netc.cfg)
    • Create Map (file.net.xml)
    • Flow (file.flow.xml)
    • Turn (file.turn.xml)
    • Create Vehicle (file.rou.xml)
    • Configuration (file.sumo.cfg) - This file is the one running in sumo-gui
    • Visualization (file.sumo.tr) - This file will be helpful in creating the tcl file for ns2.
    • Run Simulation (no of vehicles emitted and running with simulation time will be shown)
  •  Traffic Model
    • Static Mobility (this creates file.nam, file.tr, file.tcl) that can be running using ns2.

All the above images shows that the move and sumo is helpful in creating a traffic simulation that transmit packets between the vehicles. Here each node in nam represents the vehicle and they transmit packets between them.
The packet delivery ratio, throughput, bit error rate, loss rate, end to end delay can be calculated based on the tracefile generation.

The same project can be extended as following
  • A car act as a malicious node and can be analysed for the packet loss before and after malicious activity
  • Instead our own design of junctions and roads, real roads may be taken using openstreetmap and some of the above procedures may be carried out. 
If any user needs the source code for any of these applications, they can contact me through my email or comment in the following section.

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…

ns3 installation in Ubuntu 16.04

This post serves the installation instructions of ns3 in ubuntu 16.04 version. Some of my students are working in ns3, this post will benefit them in installing ns3.

OS Used: Ubuntu 16.04.4
ns3 version: ns3 version 3.27

The same procedure will be applied for OS like Debian, Linux Mint.

Fresh installation of Ubuntu 16.04 Let you try the fresh installation of ubuntu in your hard disk along with windows.
Installation of ns3 dependencies ns3 needs so many dependencies, developmental libraries, drivers, etc. so install all those
$] sudo apt update  $] sudo apt upgrade
$] sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev python-pygoocanvas python-pygraphviz cvs mercurial bzr git cmake p7zip-full python-matplotlib python-tk python-dev python-kiwi python-gnome2 python-gnome2-desktop-dev python-rsvg qt4-dev-tools qt4-qmake qt4-qmake qt4-default gnuplot-x11 wireshark
The above command make take some time to download, compile and install it, Be Patient.
