MONET3 - SIMULATION OF SHORT-RANGE MOBILE RADIO NETWORKS UNDER RTI CONDITIONS

A description is given of the MONET3 simulator developed to evaluate RTI communications systems. MONET3 simulates a mobile radio network and is used to evaluate complex protocol stacks and performance behaviour under realistic conditions. The four modules, simulator kernel, channel module, event module and evaluation module are described. MONET3 can be used with several different simulators. The combined simulation of MONET3 with the PROMETHEUS simulator Autobahn Simulator (AS) is described. The movement module is outlined. Aspects of AS are considered in more detail including a) the traffic model, b) driver behaviour (longitudinal and lateral), c) vehicle modelling and d) road elements. Simulation results with the communication protocol Framed ALOHA are provided as an example. For the covering abstract see IRRD 866746.
