In this paper, the authors describe mobile network and efficient routing protocol for wireless ad hoc networks. They report on its implementation, on performance comparisons and on a formal validation result. Moreover, they discuss cellular system design, global system for mobile communication, formal protocol verification and operating over infrared or Bluetooth. This paper evaluates two model checking tools, SPIN and UPPAAL, using the verification of the ad hoc routing protocol as a case study. Insights are reported in terms of identifying important modeling considerations and the types of ad hoc protocol properties that can realistically be verified.
