We present in this paper the performance evaluation for H.264/AVC video transmission over wireless ad hoc networks. In order to achieve robust video transmission under ad hoc mode, the proposed system not only develops a physical rate based strategy for dual band IEEE 802.11 b/g, but also adopts EDCA MAC layer architecture of IEEE 802.1 le for an improved QoS performance. The dual mode operation allows the ad hoc terminals to move within a larger coverage area while maintaining robust…
