While Cooja has been proven to be an ideal tool for the simulation of RPL in WSNs, there are challenges involved in its use, particularly in regard to a lack of documentation. The Contiki website provides an image of Instant Contiki which can then be used with the virtualisation tool VMware. Once Instant Contiki is successfully started the Contiki website can then be referred to for brief instructions regarding a simple network setup on Cooja. However, this is the sum total of any official documentation regarding Cooja, with the majority of support being provided within Internet discussion groups. This report, therefore, aims to provide an instruction set, to enable anyone with no previous exposure to Cooja to be able to create network layouts, compile motes, examine output using the Sensor Data Collect plugin and also utilise scripts to produce more fine-grained results.
