This paper presents a new MAC protocol: Adaptive Space Time - TDMA (AST-TDMA) for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) operating as a swarm in the open ocean. The aim of the protocol is to allow the dissemination of navigational information amongst the vehicles as quickly as possible such that they may operate as a group in a swarm like fashion. The proposed new protocol incorporates a method to handle the unique channel characteristics experienced underwater, in particular low bandwidths and… CONTINUE READING
