Abstract

This paper addresses issues for the establishment of multihop ad-hoc networks based on Scatternet formation using bluetooth. We describe a new approach of inter-piconet communication. Differing from existing protocols, the design allows the slave to establish contact with other slaves present in the piconet without passing through the master. All new piconet clock synchronization will depend on only one master leader. This will increase the capacity of slave to switch from one piconet to another every slot, increasing consequently the traffic data transfer. We perform a simulation that provides evidence of improving average throughput.
