We present a new networking protocol, AirRAID, intended for wireless devices that, using the collective power of multiple devices within short-range communication sight, extends the availability of a secondary medium over an ad-hoc mesh network, resilient to the erratic movements of the mobile nodes from which it is comprised. We suggest improvements to the Bluetooth discovery algorithm, making use of a quantized hop velocity space to lower the probability of two devices missing each other completely during discovery, and introduce the concept of redundant backup paths to the wireless mesh, allowing for improved reliability in dynamic mesh network situations.
