Modelling of Half-Duplex Radio Access for HopeMesh Experimental WMN Using Petri Nets

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 431)


The article presents a problem of shared access to a radio channel in an experimental Wireless Mesh Network. Half-duplex radio access algorithm used by the radio modules used in the network has been shown, then the access problem has been thoroughly defined. Finally a shared radio channel access problem has been modelled using Petri nets.
