Ad hoc networks are peer networks of mobile computational nodes. They are well explored in the contexts of sensor networks, habitat monitoring and robotic collaboration. Recently, ad hoc networks have elicited increasing interest as flexible distributed application environments. Today, many people carry numerous portable devices, such as laptops, mobile phones, PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) and mp3 players, for use in their professional and private lives. For the most part, these devices are used separately i.e. their applications do not interact.
