Two algorithms for network size estimation for master/slave ad hoc networks.
2009 IEEE 3rd International Symposium on Advanced Networks and Telecommunication Systems, ANTS 2009.
This paper proposes an adaptation of two network size estimation methods: random tour and gossip-based aggregation to suit master/slave mobile ad hoc networks. We show that it is feasible to accurately estimate the size of ad hoc networks when topology changes due to mobility using both methods. The algorithms were modified to account for the specific constraints of master/slave ad hoc networks and the results show that the proposed modifications perform better on these networks than the original protocols. Each of the two algorithms presents strengths and weaknesses and these are outlined in this paper.
