Executive Summary

The proliferation of wireless-enabled portable computing devices has spurred a growing need for efficient and powerful networking protocols. The key challenge in the development of robust wireless networking protocols is an ability to conduct effective and efficient evaluation of the protocol in order to ensure its successful working in real-world settings. The paper proposes MiNT- 2, a fresh re-design of the original MiNT framework developed at Stony Brook University. One of the fundamental requirements of MiNT-2 is to provide location awareness of all the nodes within the network. This paper demonstrates the use of Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in order to carry out localization of the mobile nodes within the system.
