Routing in Ad Hoc wireless networks using the RPL routing protocol

Chen Daniel

Hundreds to thousands of “mobile” users in a 2D zone. The zone is split into 4 quarters and each quarter is managed in a different physical computer. One designated node (user) serves as the root to construct the DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph) through which the routing takes place.

Project background :

In many battle fields citizens find themselves explorer to the enemy missile treatment. For many years scientists tried to develop an active defense system more than existing passive one, to protect the citizens.

The Iron Dome is a mobile all-weather air defense system. The system is designed to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and artillery shells fired from distances of 4 kilometers to 70 kilometers away and whose trajectory would take them to a populated area.

Iron Dome has three central components:

  • Detection & Tracking Radar
  • Battle Management & Weapon Control (BMC).
  • Missile Firing Unit (MFU)

The project is the Iron Dome system simulation, written in Erlang language.

The simulation composes of 1 central computer (map & HMI) and 3 Biggles units (Radar, BMC, MFU).
