Guided Research - Project Report


The main goal of this guided research was to come up with a protocol to detect the topology of the network with nodes connected via IEEE 802.11. We came up with a protocol, which terminates with consistent topology information among nodes. One of the main tasks was the termination of the distributed protocol, which was solved by introducing a master node to compare the hash values of the topology matrix of each node. As a part of guided research, the protocol was implemented and tested.
