Intermittently connected mobile ad-hoc networks
Mobile wireless network devices are often not within the transmission range of access points. In order to be able to connect to them anyway, other nodes serve as intermediate points that forward the data. Such network topologies are called mobile ad-hoc networks. The constant movement of peers, a limited energy supply and sporadically interrupted connections place high demands on routing algorithms and hardware. In this thesis, both aspects were investigated with respect to their suitability in the field of wireless telemetry: Collecting measurement data from grazing livestock using sensors and transmitting them wirelessly.
