Wireless Sensor Networks(WSNs) are primarily regarded as data gathering entities that route data to a central server for subsequent processing. However, as WSN technologies mature and their prevalence increases, it is envisaged that a range of diverse and innovative services for mobile subscribers will be launched, of which some may require remote access and interaction with individual WSNs. Such an eventuality will give rise to additional constraints in the WSN planning and deployment processes, and raise particular challenges in the practical engineering of mobile applications and services. In this paper, a simulation tool is described. This tool enables software engineers rapidly model WSN deployments, and in this way, explore how interactions between mobile users and WSNs may occur.
