Mesh routing protocols are specifically designed to meet the challenges resulting from frequent topology changes. In addition, they must generate and maintain reliable routes that are optimized with respect to QoS or energy efficiency. Routing protocols are usually developed for a set of scenarios with a certain traffic pattern and network architecture. Some protocols can be configured to achieve good performance in different kind of scenarios. However, the capability of the protocols to adapt themselves to different network characteristics often comes at the price of increased complexity. In this paper we introduce a statistic-based approach towards routing in mesh networks which is able to deal with many of the challenges arising in networks suffering from topology changes without the need of complex algorithms or a huge amount of memory.
