Our research group has designed and developed a network simulator for realistic evaluation of mobile network systems and protocols, called MobiREAL. MobiREAL simulator enables developers to specify realistic behavior of mobile nodes; persons and vehicles that correspond to mobile nodes may change their behavior and location from time to time depending on their surrounding information, and MobiREAL provides a framework to simulate both the behavior of mobile nodes and network systems interactively. For details of MobiREAL, please visit our MobiREAL Home Page (http://www.mobireal.net)

This research was partly supported by Strategic Information and Communications R&D Promotion Programme (SCOPE) of Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications from April 2004 to March 2007. Currently, MobiREAL is used more than 50 research institutes in 15 countries.
