I have made implementations for the (now discontinued) Mobility Framework (MFw) and its successor, MiXiM. Read the rest of this entry »

Monday, August 8, 2011 Posted by

OSI-type stacks with communication by passing messages is nice an all, but not always the easiest (or fastest) way to do it. Say you have a module ‘host’ which has ‘appl’, ‘netw’ and ‘nic’. You can then navigate this ‘virtual’ structure (present in the NED files) to get to your module’s netw block. Read the rest of this entry »
