New Challenges in Simulation of Low-power Wireless Devices

This scientific project aims to develop models that would enable computer simulation of modern low-power wireless micro-devices that are one of the key technologies in the so-called Internet of Things. Such devices are embedded into surrounding physical objects—things—and integrate hardware components used for processing, radio communication, and sensing or actuating the objects, so as to allow them to autonomously make our lives easier. To this end, however, the micro-devices must be coordinated, which is the task of software that implements existing and emerging dedicated network protocols. In this light, simulation is a crucial mechanism that enables benchmarking the developed protocols, even in networks of thousands of devices, potentially with minimal initial investments in real hardware, which significantly reduces the overall costs of research on Internet of Things solutions. The motivation behind the project is the fact that there are currently no suitable models for the dominant modern hardware architectures adopted in low-power wireless micro-devices.
