Compressed Neighbor Discovery for Wireless Networks

This paper studies the problem of neighbor discovery in wireless networks, namely, each node wishes to discovery and identify the Network Interface Address (NIA) of those nodes within a single hop. A novel paradigm, called compressed neighbor discovery is proposed, which enables all nodes to simultaneously discover their respective neighborhoods within a single frame of transmission, which is typically of a few thousand bits. The key technique is to assign each node a unique on-off signature and let all nodes simultaneously transmit their signatures.
