A Norm-Governed Systems Perspective of Ad Hoc Networks
Ad hoc networks are a type of computational system whose members may fail to, or choose not to, comply with the laws governing their behaviour. We are investigating to what extent ad hoc networks can usefully be described in terms of permissions, obligations and other more complex normative relations, based on our previous work on modelling norm-governed multi-agent systems. We propose to employ our existing framework for the specification of the laws governing ad hoc networks. Moreover, we discuss a software infrastructure that executes such specifications for the benefit of ad hoc network members, informing them of their normative relations. We have been developing a sample node architecture as a basis for norm-governed ad hoc network simulations. Nodes based on this architecture consider the network's laws in their decision-making, and can be individually configured to exhibit distinct behaviour. We present run-time configurations of norm-governed ad hoc networks and indicate d...
