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.:

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.

TORA Protocol in NS-2.35 (NS2)

This post tells you how to enable the TORA (Temporally ordered routing Algorithm) protocol in Network Simulator 2 (ns-2.35)

TORA is a protocol in wireless adhoc networks that works with timing parameters. NS-2.35 comes with the TORA protocol by default but it has to be tweaked manually to make it run.
This post will help you to do that.

You can watch this video for detailed instructions:


Step 1: Generate a Scenario for TORA protoco using NS2 Scenario Generator NSG Software.
We have created a tcl file using NSG2.1.jar

$] java -jar NSG2.1.jar

Three files have to be modified
~ns-2.35/tora/tora.cc~ns-2.35/tora/tora.h~ns-2.35/imep/imep.cc There are various websites that tells you how to configure TORA by making changes to the above three files.  Change 1: tora.h In the tora.h file, go to the end of the File before the agent completes, include these two lines

#include <classifier/classifier-port.h>
protected: PortClassifier *dmux_;

Change 2: tora.cc Open the tora.cc and include the follow…
