Ad-hoc networks are self-organized wireless networks. They have the potential to be widely used in emergency salvation, construction sites, and military fields. However, the research about the efficient usage of ad-hoc networking in engineering applications is still limited. In this research, a new approach for investigating problems related to deploying ad-hoc wireless networks for supporting on-site communication and collaboration is proposed. Several modes of communication which are common in on-site applications are considered including location information, text messaging, voice and video communications, and file transmission. A prototype system is implemented for testing these modes based on available ad-hoc network protocols and using mobile devices. In addition, in order to verify our proposed approach, several tests are designed and implemented to demonstrate the usefulness of the prototype system. The results from the tests showed that our prototype system is applicable for ad-hoc wireless networks. Furthermore, a new protocol based on clustering to improve data accessibility in ad-hoc networks is tested using a simulation tool to study its performance under different scenarios. The simulation results showed the impact of the area size, wireless range, number of nodes, and node speed on data accessibility.
