Application of Cooperative Wireless Networks in Reducing Power Consumption of Robots Exploring a Planet

Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Application of Cooperative Wireless Networks in Reducing Power Consumption of Robots Exploring a Planet ' This paper presents the comparison of the average amounts of power consumed by robots in a standard network that uses single-hop transmission and a cooperative network that uses two-hop transmission. It is shown that the ratio of the average power consumptions in the two networks depends on the number of cooperating robots on average that are available for the source and the destination, and the propagation channel. It is shown that robots in a cooperative network significantly consume less power on average.
