Distributed Time Slot Assignment in Wireless Ad Hoc Networks for STDMA
In this paper, a distributed technique is proposed to assign time slots to the nodes of an ad hoc network for Spatial Time Division Media Access (STDMA) to facilitate collision-free communication. An upper bound is established on the length of the time cycle assuming a constant bound on the degree of each node. The proposed algorithm is augmented to adapt with incremental changes in the topology.
