We investigate four performance metrics for randomized broadcast protocols on sensor networks: the fraction of nodes that receive the message (coverage), the number of first-time receivers per transmission (energy efficiency), the node-average normalized time till reception (per hop latency), and the average number of control messages per node (overhead).(More)
— AHNs are wireless networks operating without the benefits of network infrastructure (basestations) or centralized control. AHNs working with limited spectrum perform best when simultaneous transmissions are coordinated to avoid collisions. Optimal transmission coordination is a combinatorial optimization problem that is, in general, intractable for large(More)
Cooperative retransmission medium access control protocols may be used in a cellular uplink setting to achieve a higher throughput than, say, slotted Aloha, while retaining the advantages of random channel access. When multiple nodes contend for channel access simultaneously, the base station initiates a collision resolution epoch where a set of cooperating(More)
