Abstract: Time slot assignments in a TDMA ad hoc wireless network (AWN) is either centrally coordinated by a root node or distributed among all the nodes in the network. In the centralized TDMA network, the root node uses the global knowledge of the network to assign slots, but becomes more challenging in case of distributed network, as each node is expected to assign a slot for itself without conflicting other nodes' slot selection. There is plenty of literature on how slots are assigned in a centralized TDMA network but only a ...
