Abstract: In the domain of wireless sensor networks, simulation is the preferred way of evaluating new algorithms. One commonly found drawback of simulation tools is that they provide a programming environment that does not match the one present on real-world platforms. In this paper, we address this problem by presenting the steps required to port an existing software stack to a popular network simulator. This novel procedure allows for applications to run both in the simulated environment and on real-world sensor nodes without any changes to the source code. We verify our results by means of performance analyses of several simulated applications.
