In this paper, bio-inspired cooperation rules are applied to wireless communication networks. The main goal is to derive cooperative behavior rules to improve the energy consumption of each mobile device. The paper describes a Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol particularly designed for peer-to-peer communication among cooperative wireless mobile devices. The work is based on a novel communication architecture, where a group of mobile devices operates in a cellular environment while the devices are simultaneously connected with each other over short-range links. Prior work has investigated the energy savings that can be achieved by this architecture using game theoretic approaches.
