BVS-Vis: A web-based visualizer for BloodVoyagerS


BloodVoyagerS (BVS) is an ns-3 module that simulates the global movement of nanobots in the human body. The Blood-VoyagerS Visualizer (BVS-Vis) is a multi-platform visualization tool for result files of BVS. BVS-Vis shows the distribution of the simulated nanobots over time in a three-dimensional cardiovascular model. The animation can be rotated, moved, zoomed in and it is possible to navigate through different time steps. For a quick interpretation of simulation results, a heat map of the nanobots concentration can be generated via post-processing. BVS-Vis is available as a website and as a complete docker-compose setup. It increases the workflow with BVS significantly and enables prompt analysis of simulation results.
