Summary:
This thesis describes QoS routing techniques in ad hoc networks. QoS routing is to find paths between given source and destinations that fulfill a set of QoS requirements. QoS routing in ad hoc networks is a challenging problem due to the dynamical nature of ad hoc networks and the complexity of the QoS routing problem. Ticket-based probing scheme (TBP) is a creative approach to solve QoS routing problem, however, its proactive nature makes it deficient and unscalable. In this thesis, we first present the adaptive ticket-based routing protocol (ATBR), a proactive protocol enhanced from TBP, by introducing a new imprecise QoS state model. We then present the location-aided, ticket-based routing protocol (LTBR), an integration of locate-based routing and ticket-based routing, where tickets are dynamically generated and guided by location and QoS metric. Our simulations show that, in networks under any density, LTBR achieves close performances to flooding with considerably lower routing overhead.
