Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks
Current research is aimed at using geographic information to enhance establishment of ad hoc networks in new urban areas. This is done by applying advanced propagation modeling software to provide a-priori path loss information during network setup. Smart antenna technology guided by new control algorithms can further optimize network design. [More]
A team of researchers (Drs. Suresh Muknahallipatna, Margareta Stefanovic, Robert F. Kubichek, Mark Balas and Jerry C. Hamann) at the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Wyoming are performing research to use Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks for Tactical Battlefield Communications. The current tasks addressed are Efficient Localization, Radio Propagation and Backbone formation. Some of the simulations are being performed using OPNET.
A number of courses use the OPNET software to simulate advanced computer network concepts. A number of researchers are also using the OPNET software to implement and analyze the performance of algorithms developed for Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks. [More]
