The study focuses on the wireless ad hoc networks from an agent-based perspective. In a simulation, agents with different strategies such as different levels of selfishness, tit-for-tat or battery-based compete and cooperate in a model of an ad hoc network. The dominant strategy in runs where only different levels of selfishness are allowed is clearly the selfish behaviour. However, introduction of more advanced strategies allows to some extent to combat the selfish element. Of special notice are the battery-based approach and a hybrid of battery based and tit-for-tat approaches. The findings give hope that the introduction of widely available ad hoc networks might at some point be possible. The users when given full control of their devices might be able to develop effective strategies that would allow for the networks overall to be effective and feasible.
