Abstract

This paper presents a new simulation tool for performance analysis of wireless sensor networks (WSN) deployed on farm animals. The mobility and herding patterns from real herds are fed into statistical models to give rise to network simulation that is based on accurate herd behavior. The simulation results are used in evaluation of novel protocol ideas customized to the needs of farm monitoring.
