At the same time as the emergence of multimedia in mobile Ad hoc networks, research for the introduction of the Quality of Service (QoS) has received much attention. However, when designing a QoS solution, the estimation of the available resources still represents one of the main issues. This paper suggests an approach to estimate available resources on a node. This approach is based on the estimation of the busy ratio of the shared canal. The authors consider in the estimation the several constraints related to the Ad hoc transmission mode such as Interference phenomena.
