Abstract A mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is a set of moving objects that communicate with each other via unregulated, short-range wireless technologies such as IEEE 802.11, Bluetooth, or Ultra Wide Band (UWB). No fixed infrastructure is assumed or relied upon. An important application domain of MANET’s is local resource discovery. In a local resource discovery application, a user finds local resources that satisfy specified criteria. For example, a driver finds an available parking slot in a region by receiving information generated by the parking meter, or gets the traffic conditions on a highway segment a mile ahead; a cab driver finds a near-by customer, or a participant at a convention finds another participant with a matching profile.
