The present invention relates to a communication protocol for use in ad-hoc networks. In one of its embodiments, the communication protocol for ad-hoc networks includes a plurality of terminals suitable to transmit data packets with each other, having a frame subdivided into a plurality of time slots (SN). Each data packet includes the frame information (FI) relevant to a predetermined number of previous time slots (SN) starting from the one in which the packet transmission occurs; said frame information (FI) includes for each time slot (SN) and identifier (ID) of a terminal if it had performed a transmission in said slot (SN); a time slot (SN) is labeled as RESERVED for a first terminal if a second terminal finds said slot BUSY, otherwise it is labeled as AVAILABLE; a transmission between a third and a fourth terminal is successful if the slot (SN) in which said third terminal transmitted is found BUSY for said third terminal in all frame information (FI).

Abstract

The present invention relates to a communication protocol for use in ad-hoc networks. In one of its embodiments, the communication protocol for ad-hoc networks includes a plurality of terminals suitable to transmit data packets with each other, having a frame subdivided into a plurality of time slots (SN). Each data packet includes the frame information (FI) relevant to a predetermined number of previous time slots (SN) starting from the one in which the packet transmission occurs; said frame information (FI) includes for each time slot (SN) and identifier (ID) of a terminal if it had performed a transmission in said slot (SN); a time slot (SN) is labeled as RESERVED for a first terminal if a second terminal finds said slot BUSY, otherwise it is labeled as AVAILABLE; a transmission between a third and a fourth terminal is successful if the slot (SN) in which said third terminal transmitted is found BUSY for said third terminal in all frame information (FI).
