Visual editor and simulator for wireless sensor network systems
Modeling of wireless sensor networks requires sophisticated modeling
of communication channels, sensor channels, ad-hoc networking protocols,
media access control protocols, energy consumption in sensor nodes, etc.
This modeling framework is designed to support a component-based
construction of such models. It is intended to enable the research
community to share models of disjoint aspects of the sensor nets
problem and to build models that include sophisticated elements from

Mac OS X, to install VisualSense,
install the full version of Ptolemy II.
To start VisualSense under Windows, select
Vergil - VisualSense from the start menu.
Under Mac OS X, start up a Terminal window and invoke
