Random Scheduling Medium Access for Wireless Ad Hoc Networks

  title={Random Scheduling Medium Access for Wireless Ad Hoc Networks},
  author={G{\"o}khan Mergen and Lang Tong},
In this paper, we introduce a novel random scheduling strategy for distributed medium access in spreadspectrum (SS) and multipacket reception networks. The proposed random scheduling (RASC) protocol uses a special method of seed exchange in which the seeds are used for pseudo-random generation. The RASC utilizes the seeds for randomly decomposing the network into independent clusters containing a single receiver. After the decomposition, the network resembles to the up-link of cellular networks… CONTINUE READING
