    how to make hardware simulator, for example cisco has a router
    simulator that simulates it's physical routers. what things need to be
    done to make a simulator , are there any ongoing projects like this.

    Lots & Yes

    Now are you aware of the theorem that is you build the simulator perfectly the
    program running can't tell if it is on the simulator or real silicon? For extra
    credit, what does that say about your brain? Do you think and "are simulated"
    rather than "I am"?

    Your question is too general. It's only going to invite answers such
    as "have you tried the create_hardware_simulator() function?". You
    need to be more specific.

    The word you are looking for is probably "emulator". If you are asking
    if there has ever been a project to build a software emulator of any
    piece of hardware: Yes, there has (for example, snes9x emulates a
    Super Nintendo, VMWare's products emulate x86 machines). To answer
    "what things need to be done to make an emulator", well; it's a field
    in itself, worthy of a few college courses. You can start here:
