STRAW Simulator

STRAW Simulator is called as Streetrandom WayPoint mobility model. Random waypoint model simulation does not need require origin destination information. Straw involves in determining vehicle’s trajectory at each intersection. For Example (traffic control.speed limits and also multiple lanes).

Advantages of using Straw Simulator:

  • Low Overhead.
  • Easy to configure.
  • And also in Loads free map data for entire US.


  • Used for Route Management and Execution Component.
  • Used for Road Segment on below categories
    • Shape.
    • Address.
    • Length.
    • Width.
    • Name.
    • Class.
    • And also in Average maximum speed.
  • STRAW simulator is implemented as part of SWANS ( Scalable Wireless Ad-Hoc Network Simulator).
  • More realistic appropriate details are available for Straw.
  • Accurate network simulation and also intended for vehicular network is performed using simulator.


Initialization procedures of STRAW:
  • Loads Road Segments, Names and also Shapes for Rectangular Region.
  • Nodes placed on rabndom streets and also lanes.
Mobility Types in STRAW-Simulator:
  • Intra Segment Mobility supports car-following model, cruising speed and also acceleration/deceleration.
  • Inter Segment Mobility supports timed stoplights, stop signs and also highway merge.
Future Process of STRAW-Simulator:
  • Provision of effective mobility aware communication protocols.
  • Content distribution on VANET.
  • Middleware for VANET applications.
  • Minimizing bandwidth also based on peering links with deflection in named data networking
  • Fast enlarging a BitTorrent Swarm via social networking
    Optical networking research in Europe
  • An architectural view of service overlay networking platform also for future user-centric networking
  • RDAI: Router-Based Data Aggregates Identification Mechanism also for Named Data Networking
  • Scalable lunar surface networks and also adaptive orbit access
  • An End-to-End Solution also to Scalable Unstructured P2P Networking
