While we built the open-source Simulator to host our competition, we are excited for its utility for a range of RF simulation tasks and workflows. Its microservice architecture means users can modify agents in simulated RF networks independently from one another, and its sample synchronization means the simulator will run on just about any x86 processor.

Two areas that we think the Simulator could benefit are academic labs and instruction. As a virtual RF testbed, the Simulator gives users the ability to experiment with real IQ without having to incur the cost or complexity of real radios. We think it’s a natural platform to build instructional labs and other experiments on.

If you have such a use case, or know anyone who does, we want to hear from you! Come join us on Slack and let us know!
