Bluetooth is a promising wireless technology that enables devices to form short-range wireless ad-hoc networks or personal area networks. However, formation of the scatternet, or a Bluetooth network, is one of the challenges that need to be resolved since their performance depends largely on the scatternet topology used. Further, to improve the performance of the scatternet, the energy capability of Bluetooth devices should be utilized to determine their roles in the scatternet with more capable devices performing more demanding roles.
