Wireless communication systems are becoming the new enabling technology for accessing, sharing and processing data. It is easy to foresee that in the near future users will access the Internet through wireless PDA, while roaming from one place to another. Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET) are peer-to-peer wireless networks that do not rely on the presence of a wired interconnection infrastructure. Apart from more traditional applications in the military field as well as in disaster recovery and emergency situations, MANET may represent an interesting possibility for personal communications and interaction among mobile users. We identify some possible fields of application for such wireless systems, identifying advantages and drawbacks. We also present a prototype application where MANETs are used in order to provide a distributed image processing service.
