Ad-hoc wireless network is a part of wireless communication network. This network does not require any infrastructure. It is a distributed Routing network, and it supports for reusing of frequency dynamically. As ad-hoc network has different features, so it has to solve different issues as energy constraint, shared bandwidth and mobility, hence, required to design protocols which support both MAC and network layer. Sensor network is another part of ad-hoc network used to sense the environmental conditions which may be periodic conditions or non-periodic conditions. Sensor node can be used for monitoring heat, temperature, humidity, intrusion detection, etc.
