Distributed Diffusion-based Mesh Algorithm for Distributed Mesh Construction in Wireless Ad Hoc
 

Summary: Distributed Diffusion-based Mesh Algorithm for
Distributed Mesh Construction in Wireless Ad Hoc
and Sensor Networks
Komlan Egoh, Roberto Rojas-Cessa, and Nirwan Ansari
Abstract--Reliable mesh communications in dense wire-
less ad hoc networks require the creation of both self
organizing mesh structures and mesh routing protocols to
accomplish efficient and reliable communications with the
added infrastructure redundancy. To date, much of the
research in the area has focused on communication protocol
design. The investigations often are based on a mesh net-
work structure already fully formed and some times fixed to
the underlying physical node topology. Therefore, there is a
need for a platform to build mesh networks with structural
flexibility and to provide management functions to network-
and application-level protocols. In this paper, we propose
the distributed diffusion-based mesh (DDM) algorithm for
distributed mesh construction that instructs distributed
nodes on how to make the desired connections with their
neighbors. We accomplish this by introducing the concept of
