Extensible Software Architecture for a Distributed Engineering Simulation Facility Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper discusses the design and implementation of a software architecture for an Ethernet and wireless IEEE 802.11 network-based distributed simulation and experiment facility. A need has arisen for an easy-to-use, flexible, transparent, and cross-platform communication backbone for configuration and execution of distributed simulations and experiments. Open source, open architecture, and custom student written codes have extended the capabilities of educational research facilities and opened the way for the development of the architecture presented in this paper. The goal of this architecture is to facilitate rapid integration of new and legacy simulations and laboratory equipment to support undergraduate and graduate research projects as well as educational classroom activities. 2010 by Jim May Jr. and John Valasek.
