Paper: A concept of communication distance and its applicaitons in six situations of mobile environment, By Jeffery V. Nickerson - 11/18/2005

Yuqing Ke

Wireless networks combined with location technology create new decision aids. As a precursor to the development of these decision aids, a concept of communication distance is developed and applied to six situations in this paper. This concept allows time and bandwidth to be combined in a single measure so that many problems can be mapped onto a weighted graph and solved through shortest path algorithm. The paper looks at the problem of intercepting an out-of-communication team member and describes ways of using planning to reduce communication distance in anticipating of a break in communication. The concept is also applied to ad hoc network. A way of performing route planning using a bandwidth map is developed and analyzed.
