2'nd conference attended

It was 2'nd conference I had. The environment very common where nothing so exited. The audience to small. All of them was presenter it's self. I never get any question from audience during my presentation, but it very nice when we can gather with all researcher in Malaysia with difference background i.e. medicine, ICT, engineering, physic & chemical etc.

MSTC (COSTAM) paper ready

After I complete writing this conference paper, to get a sponsor by project fund the paper it's self need to be review by college panel. Then the paper has to return back to me, to do some modification work on the mistake that I did. Then the paper now ready to be fund and to be present in these respective conference…

Dear God, syukur for everything that I had.

Programmer-defined Library

Now I want to concentrate on how to create our own algorithm, some detail need to clearify i.e. what thing need to implement for our algorithm. Working in NS-2 there are limitation thing we can do in TcL language. But for our case we need to edit in C++ method where new library to be introduce.
We create our own programmer-define libraries to further modularize our program. Some brief about programmer-defined library. In library contain some general purpose function that we aspect to use in future application. Then after we clarify them pun in one library and implement them, we can use in other projects, just we use in standard library functions in many other programs.

NSF sponsor

Salam, everyone
Quite long since I not updating my blog because of many thing need to do.
Yesterday I call MOSTI to ask about my NSF application.
Then they spoke to me that I success to get NSF scholarship.
Wow it was the best news in 2008 that I have.
Now I don't have to think about my financial problem and then I can only to concentrate about my research.

For Syikin and Fadilah I wish you good luck for your application.
When during your interview session stay calm and always trust on your capability, you can do it, never give up....

S.M.A.R.T Goals

I got some article from Sumay blog perhaps it can motivate some thing for our survival work...


Specific - A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. To set a specific goal you must answer the six "W" questions:
*Who: Who is involved?
*What: What do I want to accomplish?
*Where: Identify a location.
*When: Establish a time frame.
*Which: Identify requirements and constraints.
*Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.
EXAMPLE: A general goal would be, "Get in shape." But a specific goal would say, "Join a health club and workout 3 days a week."

Measurable - Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set. When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs you on to continued effort required to reach your goal.
To determine if your goal is measurable, ask questions such as......
How much?
How many?
How will I know when it is accomplished?

Attainable - When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true. You develop the attitudes, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach them. You begin seeing previously overlooked opportunities to bring yourself closer to the achievement of your goals.
You can attain most any goal you set when you plan your steps wisely and establish a time frame that allows you to carry out those steps. Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach eventually move closer and become attainable, not because your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to match them. When you list your goals you build your self-image. You see yourself as worthy of these goals, and develop the traits and personality that allow you to possess them.

Realistic - To be realistic, a goal must represent an objective toward which you are both willing and able to work. A goal can be both high and realistic; you are the only one who can decide just how high your goal should be. But be sure that every goal represents substantial progress. A high goal is frequently easier to reach than a low one because a low goal exerts low motivational force. Some of the hardest jobs you ever accomplished actually seem easy simply because they were a labor of love.
Your goal is probably realistic if you truly believe that it can be accomplished. Additional ways to know if your goal is realistic is to determine if you have accomplished anything similar in the past or ask yourself what conditions would have to exist to accomplish this goal.

Timely - A goal should be grounded within a time frame. With no time frame tied to it there's no sense of urgency. If you want to lose 10 lbs, when do you want to lose it by? "Someday" won't work.
But if you anchor it within a time frame, "by May 1st", then you've set your unconscious mind into motion to begin working on the goal.
T can also stand for Tangible - A goal is tangible when you can experience it with one of the senses, that is, taste, touch, smell, sight or hearing. When your goal is tangible you have a better chance of making it specific and measurable and thus attainable.

Power cosumption using Jtrana

WSN is one routing protocol algorithm that depend on battery as power supply. Every strategy of routing protocol need to plan in order to save battery power as much as possible. This is because of by focus on energy consumption we can ensure the live spend of battery will be prolong. However to save battery energy it got limitation where average delay and throughput for the network must in acceptable range. But for let we see what existing routing algorithm can give in order to save power consumption.

Here there are some example simulation and result show power consumption by Jtrana:

Here node 0 where act as access point to collect data from common node

Here example one of common node where the power consumption less than access point
We are now compare between three routing algorithm, we are only focus on access point because from our observation show access point will always use large of energy consumption. So we make it more than other common nodes.

1.Scenery size350 meters X 350 meters
2.Transmission range175 meters
3.No. of node9 nodes (8 common nodes & 1 sink node)
4.Routing ProtocolProtoname (New protocol)

Then the result is:

Sent packet

Receive packet

Dropped packet

Abstract for national and international conference paper..

My supervisor, Mr Suhaimi ask me to propose paper conference for represent of our group, then I try to search from previous email where our RMC director Assoc. Prof Dr. Md Zaini and other have sent 2 or 3 notice about call for paper conferences before.
But before that the question mark is what result need to include and it is that result enough to be accept in that conference. Whatever the is thing I need to do it no matter how....

Tips due preparation for conference technical paper

have done a progress presentation last week. During presentation Mr. Fairuz where he is coordinator of RA seminar suggested when every simulation and result achieve during our research work, after that we need to put on one A4 paper then give some explanation on it. Then if we want to publish on several conference, we can just choose which result need to include for respective conference, so that we can publish 2 or 3 conference in the same time, I think is good to us to apply the tips on our research management. Peace...

Relationship each file in new routing protocol

I try to understand relationship of these protoname routing protoname as well other routing protocol. But before that I try to look for other routing protocol where like example DSDV and AODV. What are trying to see is every similar type of file in each folder. Also to see what another file that it "include" during beginning of program. There are:


File that include in routing table header

2.What are routing table use as parameter Destination-Addrest
Next Hop
Metric distance
Network address Neighbor address

File that include in routing protocol header

Introduction Protoname routing algorithm

I want give some brief explanation about main important point in protoname routing algorithm there was 5 file we need to build up where there are:

  2. protoname.h
  4. protoname_rtable.h
  5. protoname_pkt.h

All these files got their own function...

Then it also need to configure other file to declare all new file that we added before like example:

  1. packet.h
  2. cmu-trace.h
  4. ns-packet.tcl
  5. ns-default.tcl
  6. ns-lib.tcl
  8. Makefile

After that we just can execute make and the new routing protocol should work in our NS-2 simulation..

You can get protoname file Here

Try Protoname routing protocol

After some review on paper as what I mention before, showing how to add some new routing protocol. There involve some editing on existing NS-2 library like e.g make.o, packet.h & etc. But after I successes install new routing protocol call protoname the test result from some simple simulation show all packet drop from network but it manage work with no error on the program. So now I need to compare this routing protocol with current routing protocol available NS-2 library.

Working on new routing protocol

Now it is time for me to concentrate on deep routing protocol algorithm. Then the question is: where to start? Because to edit on routing protocol it is was big issue & real hard work to be done. For the beginning what I want to try is review some tips based on paper “Implementing a New Unicast routing Protocol in NS2” from University of Murcia, Spain, then hopefully by try these step can be give some idea where area is need to concentrate....

Instal Xandros on SATA based PC

Mr. Farizul found DVD that contain latest Xandros version 4.5, that can work and support on SATA based PC. I try to install with new PC and finally I successful installed. Thank to Mr. Farizul doing searching on it. The performance for new Xandros, in new PC is very good. With Pentium Core 2 Duo come along with 4G Byte RAM can give NS-2 simulation very fast. The next problem is the trace file produced by simulation take longer time to analyze, especially trace from mannasim script generator. Sometime trace file take around 1 or 2 days to complete. I want to try on server if it can analyze more fast than PC.

DSDV routing protocol with 25 nos. of nodes

Another testing conduct with DSDV routing protocol and increased the number of nodes. From the result show some difference behaviour happen. The simulation environment is:

1.Scenery size400 meters X 400 meters
2.Transmission range200 meters
3.No. of node25 nodes (24 common nodes & 1 sink node)
4.Routing ProtocolDSDV

Result from the scenario show with DSDV always generate data to all nodes. But the total of amount packet generate not consistent and most nodes not much contribute to generate packet.

From figure above only 3 nodes manage generate more than 4000 packet. Now we try to see whether the three nodes most generate packet have relationship with forwarding packet.

There are several relation ship about the node there are:

This may be give some clue about forwarding packet...

From the result show not much packet manage to receive at access point, this what we want to figure about?

A lot of dropped packet, more than 8000 packet so, this what we want to avoid of.

DSDV routing protocol on 10 nos. of nodes

Now I try the same situation before but a bit of modification on type of routing protocol and size of area. DSDV routing protocol; it is not big reason for me to change the area size but just only to see the difference between of them. There are:

1.Scenery size400 meters X 400 meters
2.Transmission range200 meters
3.No. of node9 nodes (8 common nodes & 1 sink node)
4.Routing ProtocolDSDV

On this time from the simulation, we can see not all of the nodes generated the packet.

From figure above node no. 3 & 4 not activate to generate packet.

Also not many of intermediate nodes involve forwarding packet.

But quite much of packet generated can arrive to the access point.

Still we can see most of the packet dropped on network.

Next I will change try on environment with more no. of nodes (it is up to 25 no. of nodes) and but again with DSDV routing protocol.

Run NS-2 TcL script and evaluate with trace analyzer

I try difference combination of simulation script with TcL generator on scenery size, transmission range and no. of node. Before this I was try some simulation show the power consumption not much used within 100 second simulation, where about 5 joules. So I try to set the initial energy at 5 joules where we can see power usage until the battery empty.

The simulation environment was set on:

1.Scenery size350 meters X 350 meters
2.Transmission range175 meters
3.No. of node9 nodes (8 common nodes & 1 sink node)
4.Routing ProtocolDSDV

The result was we can see all nodes generate and sent from common node

some forwarding packet in intermediate nodes and

only only a few of the packets can receive at access point

where others drop on the network.

In future work are I will simulate the scenario with the same no. of nodes but difference type of routing protocol.

Jtrana trace analyzer

Now still doing on the evaluation on mannasim script, where it can generate TcL script file and after that just run on it and produce trace file. But when we are evaluating on the trace file, it come out with a lot of drop from the node.

Currently I have change to Jtrana. Jtrana is better than previous trace analyzer where it can show the power consumption on the node.

New partner & friends

First, it long time since I not login and post anything, this is because of I was forgotten my user name and password to login this blog, sorry for every one.

My new partner was Fairuz Najwa, she was good and clever girl, her FYP (Final Year Project) was in WSN area, so it is good to have someone expert in the team.

Other than that, my fellow in other team which,

Nurulhady and Farizul Helmi will join and work together both groups to gain our progressing to the research….

Mannasim & Trace Graph

Mannasim is add-ons to NS-2 for wsn, we used it's GUI to generate tcl script but suddenly only AODV, DSDV, DYMO & Leach manage give the output & other than that still having problem, hopefully it can be solve later.

And another tool we use is trace graph, from tcl script we can generate trace file, from trace file we can analyze traffic to see behavior of the routing protocol. Only AODV & DSDV can give good graph. DYMO and Leach give some error like "cannot read the IP file" & "maximum variable size allowed by the program is exceeded...", I want to try by reducing the node like 2 or 3 nodes and see how the result is...?

Monday, March 3, 2008


I work with my group doing research about finding new routing algorithm for wireless sensor network, the research it self only cover on simulation, meaning not involve with hardware, another person will doing all on hardware and not involve me.

We are fund by MOSTI under EscienceFund. For simulation we will using NS-2 and also add-ons with mannasin. For now we using trace graph as traffic analyzer. So far only routing protocol AODV and DSDV manage to give good output and the rest still dealing with problem.. I still working on it hopefully can solve shortly....
