This report details the modification of Contiki, a wireless sensor network operating system, to allow it to run as a virtual domain over the Xen hypervisor. Also explained is how the simulation was made possible by the use of a central domain to control the messages that are passed between the virtual domains as well as an explanation of the inclusion of the Insense runtime to allow Insense, a component based networking language, to take advantage of the simulation environment. The following document contains the design, implementation and operation considerations of the simulation environment.

Keywords: Xen, Contiki, Sensor network, Emulation, Insense, AODV
