Using directional antennas to conserve bandwidth and energy consumption in ad hoc wireless networks has attracted much attention from the research community in recent years. However, very little research has focused on applying directional antennas to broadcasting. In this paper, we propose a virtual link reduction (VLR)-based broadcasting protocol for ad hoc wireless networks using directional antennas. Based on two-hop neighborhood information, VLR relies on no location nor angle-of-arrival… CONTINUE READING
