An Efficient Algorithm to Find Broadcast Schedule in Ad Hoc TDMA Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The broadcast scheduling is of fundamental importance and practical concern for ad hoc network performance measures such as the communication delay and the throughput. The scheduling problem on hand involves determination of a collision-free broadcast schedule with the minimum length TDMA frame and the maximum slot utilization by efficient distribution of slots among stations. The problem is widely known as NP-complete, and diverse heuristic algorithms were reported to solve this problem recently. The intractable nature of the broadcast scheduling problem and its importance in ad hoc TDMA networks necessitates development of more efficient heuristic algorithms.
