Executive Summary

Wireless technology has provided an infrastructure-free and fast-deployable method to establish communication, and has inspired many emerging networks including Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), which has broad potential applications in personal area networks, emergency/rescue operations, and military battlefield applications. For example, the ZebraNet is a MANET used to monitor and study animal migrations and inter-species interactions, where each zebra is equipped with a wireless antenna and pairwise communication is used to transmit data when two zebras are close to each other. Another example is the mobile-phone mesh network proposed by TerraNet AB (a Swedish company), where the participated mobile phones form a mesh network and can talk to each other without using the cell infrastructure.
