Realistic Simulation

Realistic Simulation of Wireless Networks

Simulation is commonly used in networking research to prototype and validate new protocols and ideas. Hence, the realism of these simulators is crucial in order for the results they produce to be trustworthy and interpretable. To this end, we are working to find limitations in existing simulation methodologies and improve them through direct measurement, modeling, and implementation.
