Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ad hoc networks are characterized by fast, dynamic changes in the topology of the network. Introduction of new routing algorithms requires a deep and reliable evaluation process. In this paper, we describe an interactive flexible ad hoc simulator (IFAS) that presents a modern and novel approach to the family of ad hoc simulators. This simulator supports unique viewing, debugging, tuning and interactive capabilities that shorten significantly the design and debug process of new algorithms. The development of the IFAS is ongoing; however, we consider this new simulator as an innovative tool that will supplement traditional simulators.
