Multi-hop network with obstacles

Mobility and applications of ad hoc networks

Ad hoc networks, or networks without a central controller, or a base station. The ability of nodes in such a network to move freely and autonomously in a physical region brings several challenges: maintaining the connectivity while the nodes move, fulfilling the requirements (QoS) of the application for which the network is deployed, and physically avoiding obstacles, to name a few. This research touches on some of the research challenges in implementing such a type of network. The applications can vary, for example, an ad hoc network can form in order to provide connectivity to ground search and rescue teams, it can also be formed in an urban environment like a city, it can also perform tasks directly in case of border patrol, environmental monitoring, traffic optimization, among others.
