Dynamic Control of Packet Transmission Rate Using Fuzzy Logic for Ad Hoc Networks
In this paper, a method of controlling packet transmission rate between nodes on an Ad-hoc network is proposed considering the characteristics of IEEE 802.11 possessing different transmission efficiencies by different transmission distances. There have been a lot of researches about algorithms for efficient routing and power saving using static power sources in the field of mobile Ad-hoc networks up until now. However, those researches have been conducted only on the assumption of ideal experimental cases. This paper considers the way of finding adequate transmission rate for the transmission distances between nodes on a mobile Ad-hoc networks so that a more realizable method is presented. In this research, a controlling algorithm for transmission data rates by the distances between mobile nodes is realized using Fuzzy logic, possibly available to be applied to Ad-hoc network routing.
