There is a fundamental difference between wireless and wired networks, since the latter employ point-to-point communication while the former use broadcast transmission as the communication primitive. In this paper, we describe an algorithm, called self-selection, which takes advantage of broadcast communication to efficiently implement the basic operation of selecting a node possessing some desired properties among all the neighbors of the requestor. Self-selection employs a prioritized… CONTINUE READING
