This paper investigates the simulation of distributed wireless networked control systems (WNCS) over mobile ad-hoc network (MANET). The simulation model includes multiple plants with a single controller and random node mobility. The widely used network simulation software optimised network engineering tool (OPNET) has been utilised to implement a realistic wireless signal propagation model using path loss and fading effects. System performances for two ad-hoc network routing protocols: DSR and AODV have been explored.
