    The design of efficient routing protocols for dynamical changing network topologies is a crucial part of building power-efficient and scalable ad hoc wireless networks. If position information is available due to GPS or some kind of relative positioning technique, a promising approach is given by geographic routing algorithms, where each forwarding decision is based on the positions of current, de...

    Time synchronization is an important issue in multihop ad hoc wireless networks such as sensor networks. Many applications of sensor networks need local clocks of sensor nodes to be synchronized, requiring various degrees of precision. Some intrinsic properties of sensor networks, such as limited resources of energy, storage, computation, and bandwidth, combined with potentially high density of no... View full abstract»

    Most research efforts in the area of MANETs focus on developing efficient routing protocols. Although routing protocols assume unique node addresses, the question of how to provide them remains open. In order to allow truly spontaneous and infrastructureless networking, a protocol for dynamic allocation of unique addresses is needed. Recently, various address autoconfiguration protocols for MANETs... View full abstract»

    Flooding-based route discovery is widely assumed in existing routing protocols of wireless ad hoc networks. Network-wide flooding enables the discovery of optimal routes from sources to destinations; however, as all network nodes are required to participate in the relays of route request packets, substantial control overhead is inevitable. Some efficient broadcast schemes can suppress redundant pa... View full abstract»

    Position and orientation of individual nodes in ad hoc sensor networks are useful for both service and application implementation. Services that can be enabled by availability of position include routing and querying. At application level, position is required in order to label the reported data in a sensor network, whereas position and orientation enable tracking. Nodes may have local capabilitie...

    Most existing localized protocols in mobile ad hoc networks, such as data communication and topology control, use local information for decentralized decision among nodes to achieve certain global objectives. These objectives include determining a small connected dominating set for virtual backbone and topology control by adjusting transmission ranges of nodes. Because of asynchronous sampling of ...

    Autonomous and semi-autonomous mobile multirobot systems require a wireless communication network in order to communicate with each other and collaboratively accomplish a given task. A multihop communications network that is self-forming, self-healing, and self-organizing is ideally suited for such mobile robot systems that exist in unpredictable and constantly changing environments. However, sinc... View full abstract»
