Abstract

Underwater multimedia acoustic sensor networks will enable new underwater applications such as multimedia coastal and tactical surveillance, undersea explorations, picture and video acquisition and classification, and dis-aster prevention. Because of the different requirements of these applications, it is needed to provide efficient differentiated-service support to delay-sensitive and delay-tolerant data traffic as well as to loss-sensitive and loss-tolerant traffic. The objective of this paper is twofold: 1) ex-plore the interactions of different underwater communica-tion functionalities such as modulation, forward error cor-rection, medium access control and routing, and 2) develop a distributed cross-layer solution integrating specialized communication functionalities that cooperate to allow mul-tiple devices to efficiently and fairly share the bandwidth-limited high-delay underwater acoustic medium.
