Description: In the past, from a signal processing perspective, most wireless networks have been Single Input and Single Output (SISO), with the sequential nature of SISO signal processing serving as a bottleneck that limits performance. However, processing multiple signals simultaneously through smart antennas could lead to substantial performance improvement. Using this new approach, researchers are exploring Multiple Input and Multiple Output (MIMO) wireless technologies to improve end-to-end network throughput of multiple flows relative to SISO antennas. This proposal investigates the impact of smart antennas on a wireless ad hoc network, in addition to proving an efficient method of implementing such a system using a Yao connectivity graph for nodes with six directed antennas.
