G-Sense is a Guide User Interface for WSN.s simulation which uses SENSE- Sensor Network Simulator and Emulator. Application features leads parameter input, Stop Time (seconds), Number of Nodes, Terrain Size (meters), Number of Source Nodes, Packet Size (Kbytes), and Interval (seconds). Stop Time is the total simulation time; Number of Nodes expresses the number of network nodes present in the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). Terrain is squared by default, with Terrain Size, defined in meters, equal to each side. Source Nodes are used to stimulate the network. Packet Size is the nominal size of transmitted packets between nodes. Finally, Interval defines packet transmission (time). When simulation is completed concluded, the user can access the respective simulation graphic through the Graphic button. This field shows the nodes location into a user defined area. Compare window is used to choose a protocol to compare with another defined by user with the same parameters. This tool simulates a Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) without knowledge about SENSE.G-Sense was described in:
