Abstract

Recent advancements in micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) and wireless communications have made possible the developments of low cost sensor networks. Applications of sensor networks are broad from domestic applications to battlefield. Due to sensors nature of limited energy, limited memory and very small computing power there are significant challenges in its design, programming and simulations. This paper explores the existing programming and simulation environments in sensor networks and demonstrates Berkeley's TinyOS and TOSSIMs outcomes to address these challenges. We have emphasied that due to resource starved nature of sensor nodes it is vital to reduce the programming code, improve the response time and minimise the energy consumption.
