NAME: Stephen Walter
TOPIC: Wireless Communication via Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vectoring (AODV)
DESCRIPTION: AODV is a reactive wireless network protocol. It is designed with work in areas without access to static wireless servers, where computers must find pathing and connect to neighboring computers while minimizing exchanged data to keep airwaves free.
MOTIVATION: The research goal is to determine why AODV is often mentioned as one of the standards in wireless protocols and its shortcomings that prevent it from becoming an accepted standard. AODV appears to emphasize calculating routes using CPU work rather than sending out more packets. Network congestion will become an important issue as more device become reliant on wireless connections. Modifications made to the AODV suggest that the protocol could be improved.
