An important aspect of wireless communication is efficiency. Efficient network resource management and quality of service (QoS) are parameters that need to be achieved especially when considering network delays. The cooperative nature of unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) networks requires that bandwidth allocation be shared fairly between individual UGV nodes, depending on necessity. In this thesis, we study the problem of dynamic bandwidth provisioning in a UGV network. Specifically, we integrate the use of a basic statistical model, known as the Markov chain with a widely known, network bandwidth reservation protocol, known as the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP). The Markov chain results are used with RSVP to identify specific bandwidth allocation requirements along a path such that data transmission along that path is successful. Using a wireless simulation program known as Qualnet, we analyze the bandwidth efficiency and show that this algorithm provides higher bandwidth guarantees and better overall QoS when compared with solely using RSVP in wireless communication networks.
