Additional Software

Each simulation with Eclipse MOSAIC requires additional software. As MOSAIC is written in JAVA, first of all, a JAVA runtime environment (JRE) needs to be installed for your operating system. Furthermore, each simulation requires additional simulators to be installed, for example the traffic simulation tool Eclipse SUMO or the communication simulators OMNeT++ / INET or ns-3.

The following table gives an overview of supported environments and simulators. Please make sure that you install those versions only.

Component Required Version
Java yes 7 and below
not supported
8
supported
11 and above
limited support
Eclipse SUMO yes* 0.32.0 and below
not supported
1.0.1 - 1.13.0
supported
above 1.13.0
not tested
OMNeT++ optional below 5.5
not supported
5.5.1
supported
5.6 and above
not supported
INET optional below 4.1
not supported
4.1.1
supported
4.2 and above
not supported
ns-3 optional below 3.33
not supported
3.34
supported
above 3.34
not tested

* All provided scenarios require SUMO to be installed. However, if a different traffic or vehicle simulator is coupled, SUMO is not certainly required.

An Eclipse MOSAIC bundle is built with every commit on our main branch in our GitHub repository . You can access and download this distribution following this link .

Update Eclipse MOSAIC

In order to update Eclipse MOSAIC to a new version, please perform the following steps manually:

  • Backup your personal simulation scenarios from MOSAIC’s scenarios directory.
  • Remove your old MOSAIC installation completely.
  • Install MOSAIC by extracting the current binary archive from above.
  • Copy your simulation scenarios back to MOSAIC’s scenarios directory.
  • Take care of possible updates of the used software and simulators from third party (see the Compatibility Matrix above).
