1 This work was funded by the United States Office of Naval Research (ONR) under Contract Number N00014-00-C-305. Abstract—This paper presents the study of a mobile ad-hoc network for teams of autonomous vehicles. We discuss the special challenges presented by the autonomous team model, and we present the self-sustaining, self-configuring dynamic network architecture we have developed to address them. We further discuss actual field experiments in which elements of the architecture have been… Expand
