LUNAR - A Lightweight Underlay Network Ad-hoc Routing Protocol and Implementation
2004 (English)In: Next Generation Teletraffic and Wired/Wireless Advanced Networking (NEW2AN'04), 2004, 300- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we describe LUNAR, a lean and efficient routing protocol for wireless ad hoc networks. We report on its implementation, on performance comparisons and on a formal validation result. The protocol departs in several ways from standard ad hoc routing protocols: it does not feature route repair, route caching, route maintenance or packet salvation. Nevertheless it closely matches the performance of AODV in settings inside of the "ad hoc horizon". We discuss the philosophy of LUNAR, report on several ports including versions for Windows and a stripped down μLUNAR capable of running inside a microcontroller and operating over infrared or Bluetooth.
