Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PROVIDING DIRECTED COMMUNICATIONS THROUGH A NETWORKED ARRAY OF NODES
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE COMMUNICATIONS DIRIGEES DANS UN ENSEMBLE DE NOEUDS EN RESEAU
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and apparatus are presented for messaging within a plurality of nodes 100, wherein each node 100 includes a processor 208, a memory 210 connected with the processor 208, and a directional communication interface 204 connected with the processor 208. The nodes 100 are operative for receiving a message including an address code with a relative target address of an intended recipient node 106; for processing the address code to determine if the current node 100 is the intended recipient node 106; for modifying the message based on the direction from which the message was received and is to be transmitted; and for re-transmitting the message including a modified address code. The nodes 100 each repeat these actions to propagate a message along multiple paths until the message along multiple paths until the message reaches a desired recipient, thereby providing path redundancy without the need for the use of unique node 100 identities or locations.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil d'envoi de messages via une pluralité de noeuds (100) comportant chacun un processeur (208), une mémoire (210) reliée au processeur (208), et une interface de communication directionnelle (204) reliée au processeur (208). Les noeuds (100) sont à même de recevoir un message contenant un code d'adresse avec une adresse cible relative à un noeud (106) de destinataire prévu; de traiter le code d'adresse pour déterminer si le noeud actuel (100) est le noeud (106) du destinataire prévu; de modifier le message sur la base du sens de réception et de transmission du message; et enfin, de retransmettre le message contenant un code d'adresse modifié. Les noeuds (100) répètent chacun les opérations précitées pour transférer un message dans des voies multiples jusqu'à ce que celui-ci arrive au destinataire cible, ce qui permet d'obtenir une redondance de voies tout en s'affranchissant d'identités ou d'emplacements de noeud (100) uniques.
