Power saving in wireless ad hoc networks without synchronization

Abstract [en]

Power saving strategies generally attempt to maximize the time that nodes spend in a low power consumption sleep state. Such strategies often require the sender to notify the receiver about pending traffic using some form of traffic announcement. Although asynchronous traffic announcement mechanisms are particularly suitable for the ad hoc environment, they also provide relatively limited power savings. This paper proposes a mechanism that improves the efficiency of asynchronous traffic announcement mechanisms by reducing the proportion of time that nodes need to spend awake, while still maintaining good connectivity properties. The mechanism is based on allowing traffic announcements to be rebroadcast by neighbouring nodes.
