Distributed phase-shift beamforming power balancing in ad-hoc and sensor networks

Ad-hoc and sensor networks are a well-studied area which gained a lot of attention in the research in the last decades. Two of the problems of battery-powered radio devices are limited transmitter power and finite amount of energy. This paper continues the path opened by the development of a new technology for radio communication which allows cluster communication beyond the horizon of each individual transmitter and the distribution of power need among the modules forming a cluster. This in terms decreases the average power need per device and contributes to a longer lifetime of the entire network.
