The ad hoc network is a temporary wireless system without a fixed (wired or wireless) infrastructure. Many clustering algorithms have been proposed to partition mobile users into clusters to support routing and network management. Most previous studies, however, focus on algorithm design, lacking an overall evaluation of clustering overheads. In this paper, we design a multiple access scheme for the broadcast of control messages, and propose a new access-based clustering protocol (ABCP) whose… CONTINUE READING
