Low Bandwidth Transmission Algorithm for Reliable Wireless Communication

Document Type

Conference Proceeding


In this research, we present a dynamic transmission algorithm that aims to provide reliable, low bandwidth communication via User Datagram Protocol (UDP) in such way that it is lighter and less rigid than Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), whereby, the degree of redundancy is a function of the noise and the probability for a bit to be corrupted. We also provide a variable number of protections depending on the importance of certain bits. In addition we provide a variable packet size depending on the noise, in order to decrease the probability of automatic repeat request. This algorithm is useful in providing lower latency communication through noisy mediums such as wireless communication.
