Abstract

We consider ad hoc networks with multiple antennas (namely MIMO ad hoc networks), in which the MIMO techniques offer spatial resources - spatial degrees of freedom. We first devise MIMO medium access control (MAC) to exploit spatial diversity. We then propose analytical methods to characterize the saturation throughput of multi-hop ad hoc networks in the presence of fading. The throughput results show that spatial diversity can yield significant gains in ad hoc networks.
