Mission-critical applications in wireless environments depend on a cross layer approach for Quality of Service. Dealing efficiently with variable link quality and dynamic topologies involves QoS integration at the link, network and transport layer interfaces. In this paper, we present a new contention-based medium access control protocol for wireless ad-hoc networks of unmanned air vehicles. A receiver-initiated access control protocol with sender scheduling provides the mechanisms to implement… CONTINUE READING
