Adrian J. Merkl, "Analyse der Lebenszeit in drahtlosen Sensornetzen mit OMNeT++," Bachelor Thesis, Department of Computer Science, Friedrich–Alexander University of Erlangen–Nuremberg (FAU), December 2010. (Advisors: Isabel Dietrich and Falko Dressler)


Further developments of wireless sensor networks (WSN) lead to a variety of possible application areas. But regardless of which purpose a WSN should fulfill, energy efficiency is one of the main goals. One solution to estimate energy efficiency is calculating the network lifetime. In their paper 'On the Lifetime of Wireless Sensor Networks' [1] Isabel Dietrich and calculations, Falko Dressler presented a theoretical approach to a generic lifetime definition for wireless sensor networks. It is the motivation of this paper to implement parts of this definition to be used with the INET Framework of the network simulation framework OMNeT++. Therefore two new modules were developed. One to actually perform the lifetime and purposes, the other to provide data needed for the calculations. For validation and better comparability the same experiments are used, which were set by Wei Zhang for her Master's Thesis 'Untersuchung der Lebenszeit von Sensornetzen mit J-Sim' [2].
