Paper Abstract

This paper first describes the innovative topology and structure of a wireless ad hoc and sensor network in a so called line-in-the-underground formation and the feasibility of achieving a reliable wireless connection underground with regards to a borehole telemetry system. It further describes a routing algorithm/protocol implementation based on a modification of the ad hoc on-demand distance vector protocol to achieve a reliable underground communication scheme for the wireless ad hoc network deployed underground for sensor data acquisition in real time as applied in the borehole telemetry system. Simulations and experiments are conducted to investigate and verify the effectiveness of this routing technique and the performance results are shown.
