We propose two novel energy-aware routing algorithms for wireless ad hoc networks, called reliable minimum energy cost routing (RMECR) and reliable minimum energy routing (RMER). RMECR addresses three important requirements of ad hoc networks: energy-efficiency, reliability, and prolonging network lifetime. It considers the energy consumption and the(More)
Miniaturization of devices with higher computational capacity coupled with advancement in communication technologies is driving the growth of deployment of sensors and actuators in our surroundings. To keep up the pace with this growth, these tiny, battery-powered devices need small-sized and high-energy density batteries for longer operation time, which(More)
Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) usually have very limited coverage. In this paper, we focus on methods to extend this range through multi-hop communication crossing several inter-connected WPANs called piconets. Multi-hop communication between piconets is possible through the bridge devices. While extending the range of WPANs, bridge devices become(More)
We provide a detailed analytical model for estimating the total energy consumed to exchange a packet over a wireless link. Our model improves many of the current models by considering details such as consumed energy by processing elements of transceivers, packet retransmission, reliability of links, size of data packets and acknowledgments, and also the(More)
Although many energy-aware routing schemes have been proposed for wireless ad hoc networks, they are not optimized for networks with heterogeneous power supplies, where nodes may run on battery or be connected to the mains (grid network). In this paper, we propose several energy-aware routing algorithms for such ad hoc networks. The proposed algorithms(More)
Energy-aware routing is an effective way to extend the operational lifetime of wireless ad hoc networks. In this paper, we propose a new energy-aware routing scheme called Reliable Minimum Energy Cost Routing (RMECR). RMECR finds routes which require least amount of energy for reliable packet transfer in ad hoc networks. It defines the energy cost of packet(More)
In this paper, we propose a generalized cooperative signal transmission model for wireless networks. In this model, the source, the destination, and an arbitrary number of relay nodes may have multiple antennas. The source node uses an orthogonal spacetime block code for signal transmission over its multiple antennas to each of the relays and the(More)
Lifetime of node-to-node communication in a wireless ad hoc network is defined as the duration that two nodes can communicate with each other. Failure of the two nodes or failure of the last available route between them ends their communication. In this paper, we analyze the maximum lifetime of node-to-node communication in static ad hoc networks when(More)
Personal Networks (PN) is a concept in the area of modern communication networks in which devices belonging to a person cooperate to offer services to the person regardless of their geographical locations. A PN may consist of several ad-hoc sub-networks (or clusters) which are interconnected through infrastructure networks such as the Internet. Failure of(More)
A Personal Network (PN) is a network of personal devices regardless of their geographical locations. A PN may consist of several ad-hoc sub-networks, each of which is referred to as a cluster. Different clusters are connected to each other through their gateways and using interconnecting structures, e.g., the Internet. Inside each cluster, there might be(More)
