The planning and deployment of a WSN (Wireless Sensor Network) in a Smart City can be a very challenging work. People involved in such implementation must be aware of how sensors and sinks may behave in the target environment. To aid the development of new WSNs, simulation tools are often used to predict how nodes will interact before spending time and money in a real deployment. Also, simulator can help students better understand WSNs. In this paper, we present MobSink, a simulator for WSNs with multiple mobile sinks. MobSink also allows to perform simulations in a Smart City scenario, with streets and movements constraints. It also shows how to configure MobSink for a generic scenario and describes how it works internally.
