Tcl script to give mobility to nodes


     Number of nodes is fixed in the program. Nodes are configured with specific parameters of a mobile wireless node. After creating the nam file and trace file, we set up topography object. set node_ ($i) [$ns node] is used to create the nodes. Initial location of the nodes is fixed. Specific X, Y coordinates are assigned to every node. Nodes are given mobility with fixed speed and specific destination location which is generated randomly. Nodes’ mobility will change time to time. Here we set the initial size for the every node by using initial_node_pos. AODV routing protocol is used here. $val(stop) specifies the end time of the simulation.

File name: “wireless3.tcl”
