Programmable agents for efficient topology formation of Bluetooth scatternets
The past few years have seen a burst in public interest and widespread use of portable electronic devices featuring both mature and emerging technologies for wireless communications. Such is the case of Bluetooth, an enabler of spontaneous data exchange and seamless access to diverse network-bound services. Nonetheless, a number of issues remain unsolved as part of Bluetooth's long standardization phase. Among those is the definition of an efficient protocol that allows the interconnection of a relatively large set of Bluetooth-enabled devices, known as a scatternet. We present a novel solution to the scatternet formation problem by means of mobile programs that produce near-optimal results according to a predefined topology formation policy. We argue that this approach offers improved flexibility when compared to existing protocols that employ the message-passing communications model for topology management in wireless ad-hoc networks. The effectiveness of the proposed scheme is ...
