Energy efficiency and fault-tolerance are the most important issues in the development of next-generation wireless ad hoc networks and sensor networks. Topology control as a low level service (typically below the traditional layer structure) governs communication among all nodes and is hence the primary target for increasing connectivity and saving energy.(More)
Fault-tolerant communication and energy efficiency are important requirements for future-generation wireless ad hoc networks, which are increasingly being considered also for critical application domains like embedded systems in automotive and aerospace. Topology control, which enables multi-hop communication between any two network nodes via a suitably(More)
This paper presents a proven correct implementation of a distributed topology construction algorithm based upon agreement on minimal-weight clusters for creating a k - regular, k -node connected fault-tolerant communication network. It adapts to crashing nodes, moving nodes and changing communication cost and is guaranteed to converge. We analyze the(More)
