Installation of ns3 in Ubuntu | Ubuntu 24.04 | ns-3.42

BonnMotion - A mobile scenario Generator Tool

BonnMotion is a tool that generates scenario for ns2, ns3, qualnet, etc. This will comfortably work with Linux. And in windows, there could be some bugs.

Please refer the documentation here: http://sys.cs.uos.de/bonnmotion/doc/BonnMotion_Docu.pdf

To use this tool for ns2, here are the steps.
Step1 : Download the BonnMotion tool from this website
Step 2: Unzip it to home folder (/home/pradeepkumar in my case)
step 3: Here are the commands to install
$] unzip -d bonnmotion-2.1.3.zip
$] cd bonnmotion-2.1.3/
$] ./install 
The above command will install, if any packages are missing for dependencies, please install it.

$] Once installed, copy the bonnmotion-2.1.3/bin/bm file to /usr/bin/ for running it anywhere. if not go to bin folder using the command given below

$] cd bonnmotion-2.1.3/bin/

To run BonnMotion
$bonnmotion-2.1.3/bin] ./bm -hm 
(this will list all the models)

$bonnmotion-2.1.3/bin] ./bm -hm RandomWaypoint
Will display all the parameters for RandomWaypoint like number of nodes, x, y, random seed, etc.

Assuming RandomWaypoint is the model

$bonnmotion-2.1.3/bin] ./bm -f scenario RandomWaypoint -n 10 -x 500 -y 500
The above command will create a file called scenario with 10 number of nodes with x and y as 500x500)

$bonnmotion-2.1.3/bin]  ./bm NSFile -f scenario
This will create two files called scenario.ns_movements, scenario.ns_params


The above two files can be used inside tcl script for ns2 using the source command

source scenario.ns_params
source scenario.ns_movements



(NB: Please note that the above two files represents nodes like $node_(0), etc and $ns_ as simulator object, either you change these variables within your tcl file or edit the above two files.  Also scenario.ns_params file shows the stop script as set val(duration) 600.0, but most of the tcl scripts may have val(stop), so change it to val(duration) in all cases) 


The same will be applied to other simulators also, refer the documentation given in the beginning of the slide.

Some screenshots for you.:

  2. thank you sir.. it worked well

    But when I am trying to add nodes while decreasing mobility it is giving the bellow error

    "$node_(0) set X_ 310.97108157103526"
    (file "ex20.ns_movements" line 1)
    invoked from within
    "source.orig ex20.ns_movements"
    ("uplevel" body line 1)
    invoked from within
    "uplevel source.orig [list $fileName]"
    invoked from within
    "if [$instance_ is_http_url $fileName] {
    set buffer [$instance_ read_url $fileName]
    uplevel eval $buffer
    } else {
    uplevel source.orig [list $fileName]
    ..."
    (procedure "source" line 8)
    invoked from within
    "source ex20.ns_movements"
    (file "ex20.tcl" line 84)

    Please help me with this. Thank you.
