Minimum Interference Distributed Scheduling for Packet Transmission
Modern wireless systems require high capacity and flexibility in the radio resource management. In this context, performance is typically limited by the interference generated by transmitters operating simultaneously in the same frequency bands. In particular, wireless short and medium range systems (e.g., wireless sensor networks) have often their transmissions organized on a packet basis so that each node occupies the medium for a time interval that is much shorter than the transmission period. In this paper, the authors introduce a novel scheduling algorithm for addressing multiple access based on Time Division (TD) in wireless networks without the need of any signalling for synchronizing mutual access.
