Abstract

        The analysis of multihop radio transmission for randomly distributed terminals in the plane has drawn a lot of attention in the literature. Several routing strategies have been investigated concerning throughput and normalized expected progress. Because of mathematically intractable problems all analyses use simulation studies as part of the derivation. In this paper we present a one dimensional model to investigate the performance of multihop networks. This model seems to be more adequate for applications in road traffic information systems. Three routing strategies `most forward with fixed transmission range', `positively most forward with fixed transmission range', and `positively most forward with variable transmission range' are analyzed on the basis of a complete mathematical description. We also consider directional antennas. The results are presented in closed formulae which are evaluated numerically and depicted in corresponding diagrams. It turns out that adjusted transmission ranges enlarge network performance. Furthermore, some interesting differences to the usual two dimensional random model occur.
