First-Fit Scheduling for Beaconing in Multihop Wireless Networks
—Beaconing is a primitive communication task in which every node locally broadcasts a packet to all its neighbors within a fixed distance. Assume that all communications proceed in synchronous time-slots and each node can transmit at most one fixed-size packet in each time-slot. The problem Minimumlatency beaconing schedule (MLBS) in multihop wireless networks seeks a shortest schedule for beaconing subject to the interference constraint. MLBS has been intensively studied since the mid-1980s, but all assume the protocol interference model with uniform interference radii. In this paper, we first present a constant-approximation algorithm for MLBS under the protocol interference model with arbitrary interference radii. Then, we develop a constant-approximation algorithm for MLBS under the physical interference model. Both approximation algorithms have efficient implementations in a greedy first-fit manner.
