Embedded systems are becoming increasingly networked and aredeployed in application areas that require close interaction withtheir physical environment. Examples include distributed mobileagents and wireless sensor/actuator networks. The complexity ofthese applications make co-simulation a necessary tool during systemdevelopment. This paper presents a simulation environment thatfacilitates simulation of computer nodes and communication networksinteracting with the continuous-time dynamics of the real world.Features of the simulator include interrupthandling, task scheduling, wired and wireless communication, localclocks, dynamic voltage scaling, and battery-driven operation.Two simulation case studies are presented: a simple communicationscenario and a mobile robot soccer game.
