Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) provide a useful means of connecting computers in unusual situations, such as search and rescue. However, they ignore those small, highly mobile devices that only support Bluetooth, a low-range, low-bandwidth Wifi alternative that consumes significantly less power. Allowing these devices to connect to Wifi MANETs could permit a variety of applications, from text messaging to VOIP to parallel processing. Bluetooth features several unusual characteristics that could make this difficult, though. In this project, I implemented this kind of integration and analyzed its success through physical testing and models both analytical and simulated.
