This report deals with the project which allows TinyOS, an operating system for wireless sensor networks, to run as a domain on the Xen virtual machine. Simulation is made possible by running many of these domains and passing their radio communications through a central controlling domain which is aware of the nodes’ locations. This report documents the design and implementation of the system as well as of the supporting tools which automate the running of predefined topologies and allow the user to manipulate topologies during execution.

Keywords: Xen, TinyOs, Sensor network, Emulation
