This paper presents a new distributed power control algorithm for ad-hoc wireless networks in random channel environments. Previous work in this area has focused on distributed power control for ad-hoc networks with fixed channels. We show that the algorithms resulting from such formulations do not accurately capture the dynamics of a time-varying channel.(More)
The throughput of vehicles on highways can be greatly increased by forming vehicle platoons with small inter-vehicle spacings. The control law that maintains stable operation of a platoon is dependent on the lead and preceding vehicle's position, velocity and acceleration profiles. These profiles guarantee string stability of a platoon and are transmitted(More)
Smart camera networks are well suited for a wide range of applications. However, system design aspects must be taken into consideration to effectively map an application onto the constraints of a smart camera network. For this reason, we propose an application-oriented design methology that enables the determination of an output set of operation parameters(More)
— We consider a wireless sensor network scenario where closely packed nodes can be grouped into clusters. Although each node might have only a single antenna, nodes within a cluster can cooperate during transmission or reception, thereby forming a cooperative Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) system. Much of the work in the area of cooperative MIMO has(More)
