Low-Latency Video Streaming With Congestion Control in Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks

In this paper, the authors address the challenge of delivering a video stream, encoded with multiple descriptions, in a mobile ad-hoc environment with low-latency constraints. This kind of application is meant to provide an efficient and reliable video communication tool in scenarios where the deployment of an infrastructure is not feasible, such as military and disaster relief applications. First, they present a recently proposed protocol that employs a reliable form of one-hop broadcast to build an efficient overlay network according to a multi-objective function that minimizes the number of packets injected in the network and maximizes the path diversity among descriptions.
