An ad hoc network is a cooperative engagement of a collection of mobile nodes without the required intervention of any centralized access point or existing infrastructure. Topology control is needed in ad hoc networks to conserve energy and maximize network lifetime while maintaining network connectivity. We propose a topology control protocol based on leader election and density based clustering. We also discuss the alone-soldier-node problem.
