Bluetooth is a prompting new technology for low power, short range wireless connectivity between mobile devices. By constructing a piconet, Bluetooth device establishes link and communicates with other devices in a master - slave manner. The piconets are combined to form the Scatternet and communicate through the relay/bridge node. So the performance of the Scatternet highly depends on the relays and its degree and mobility. The unwanted relay causes scheduling overhead and inefficient use of limited resources.
