Opportunistic communications (oppcomms) use low-cost human wearable mobile nodes allowing the exchange of packets at a close range of a few to some tens of meters with limited or no infrastructure. Typically cheap pocket devices which are IEEE 802.15.4-2006 compliant can be used and they can communicate at 2m to 10m range, with local computational capabilities and some local memory.
