Rate Adaptive Video Transmission Over Ad-Hoc Networks



Hamid Gharavi, K Ban


In mobile ad-hoc network environments where the network topology is expected to change considerably, providing reliable video communications is a challenging task. This paper is mainly concerned with developing a packet control mechanism to reduce bursts of packet drops typical of mobile multihop ad-hoc networks. Our proposed approach is based on developing a rate control mechanism via a cross-layer feedback. With this approach, the application layer would be capable of controlling the packet transmission flow in accordance with the multihop characteristics of the routing layer.
