Abstract

The objective of the Phase II is to develop an optimal design approach for the creation of a device that will support low bit rate communication over existing in-building wiring infrastructure. The desired content of data transferred was targeted for voice and sensor data. Additionally, each individual unit must be able to connect to one another via an efficient ad-hoc network structure.
