Paper Abstract

The battlefield of the future is projected to include regions with high-densities of small, networked devices. As a step toward developing decentralized, multi-path routing protocols for these scenarios, we consider the geometric problem of assembling a geographic representation of the network based solely on information about relative positions of local neighbors. We present two algorithms to be used in series. 1. The assembly of the network from relative positions only. 2. The determination of the geographic extents of the network, and the position of each node within those extents. With this information, the nodes can then assemble a position-based routing protocol, such as the Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol. We further consider the effects of positional noise on the accuracy of the constructed geography.
