- I tried checking for the average power but that doesn’t work. Even with two
transmitters transmitting at the same time the energy detected by the receiver
doesn’t change much. It remains in the same order.
- Is there any other simpler way of detecting collisions other than the
this problem is a very fundamental one, and there is no one single
correct answer. Using power as a metric is tricky, as in practice, you
never know the initial power levels of the inidivual received signals.
And if you had a test, how could you be sure it correctly identified a
collision, and you didn’t simply lose a packet due to a bad wave
Perhaps you should try and tackle this on the MAC layer. When there is a
collision, you will receive neither packet correctly, perhaps that will
trigger an ARQ etc. You can allocate slots to users, or something like
