Mobile ad-hoc networks have attracted considerable attention and interest from the commercial sector as well as the standards community. Many new ad-hoc networking applications have been conceived to help enable new commercial and personal communication beyond the domain of tactical networks, including personal area networking, home networking, law enforcement operations, search and rescue operations, commercial and educational applications, and sensor networks. Emerging Technologies in Wireless Ad-hoc Networks: Applications and Future Development provides the rationale, state-of-the-art studies and practical applications, proof-of-concepts, experimental studies, and future development on the use of emerging technologies in wireless ad-hoc networks. In addition, this work explores emerging wireless ad hoc technologies based on communication coverage areas: body sensor networks, personal area networks, local area networks, and metropolitan area networks and their applications in critical sectors, for example, agriculture, environment, public health and public transportation.
