Thomas V D Amico, Jeffrey D Bonta, Randy L Ekl, Avinash Joshi, Michael D Kotzin, Surender Kumar, Whay Chiou Lee, Peggy K Matson: Method and apparatus for broadcast in an ad hoc network using elected broadcast relay nodes. Motorola, Randi L Karpinia, Anthony P Curtis, September 22, 2009: US07593376 (18 worldwide citation)

A method and apparatus for electing broadcast relay nodes (520B, H, M) in an ad hoc network (500). Each node (520A-520O) generates an attribute message including associated parameters. Each node (520A-520O) generates a weighted value (WV) based on the parameters. The WV can be included in the attrib ...
