Self organising distributed location server for wireless ad hoc networks

Mo Adda, Gareth Owen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There are many essential applications for quorum systems in ad-hoc networks, such as that of location servers in large-scale networks. Existing research proposes many approaches to the problems, many of which are incomplete, cumbersome, or incur significant cost. We describe and analyse a self-organising quorum system that creates an emergent intelligence to minimise overhead and maximise survivability. We then examine the quorum.s performance as a location server and suggest improvements to the query mechanism and routing algorithm using the information.
