Wireless AD Hoc and Sensor Networks

Wireless Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks is a reference book for research and graduate studies. The purpose of the text is to expose researchers and graduate students to state-of-the-art advances in cross-layer design for wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. In particular, the text will explore the optimization potential of cross-layer design approaches for wireless ad hoc and sensor network performance. The text will consist of two main parts: (1) a theoretical section that provides an overview of design issues in both strictly layered and cross-layer approaches for ad hoc and sensor networks; and (2) a practical section that builds on these issues to explore three case studies of diverse ad hoc and sensor network applications and communication technologies.

The text will begin with an overview of each existing communication layer and will survey existing protocols for each of these layers. The book will then motivate cross-layer design for ad hoc and sensor networks and it will present existing cross-layer approaches. In the practical section, the text will capitalize on the authors proposed cross-layer design framework for three case studies: (1) RF sensor network monitoring network; (2) Ultra Wide Band Radio ad hoc network; and (3) Acoustic underwater sensor network.
