Educational and research activitiy on innovative routing protocols for Mobile ad hoc Area Networks

Mobile   ad   hoc   networks   (MANET)   are   continuously   self-configuring   infrastructure-less   network   of   wirelessly
connected   mobile   devices.   Mobile   ad   hoc   networks   can   be   used   in   many   applications,   ranging   from   sensors   for
environment,   vehicular   ad   hoc   communications,   road   safety,  health,   home,   peer-to-peer   messaging,   disaster   rescue
operations, air/land/navy defense, weapons, robots, etc. The main approach to study MANETs is based on simulation
tools like NS2, NS3, The One, etc... A comparative study of various simulators for such networks requires to take into
consideration factors such as constrained road topology, multi-path fading and roadside obstacles, traffic flow models,
trip models, varying vehicular speed and mobility, traffic lights, traffic congestion, drivers' behavior, etc.,
During   this  apprenticeship   the   students   will   learn   how   to  simulate   mobile   ad   hoc   networks   within   reflect   realistic
conditions  in order to design various applications for this technology.
At the end of this apprenticeship the student will be able to develop MANET simulations and to devise the related performance models.
