Metric ETX_ANT


We have implemented an extension to the olsr daemon olsrd. It integrates the use and computation of the classical routing metric ETX but anticipates its values to manage efficiently nodes' mobility. It aims to be used in wireless ad hoc and mesh networks. The related articles are:

Note that the linux wireless tool iw has to be installed. It is called to obtain the signal strength for each neighbor. The compilation steps are the same as for the native olsrd daemon [link].
