The development of ad hoc networking is now being watched with keen interest, because it is a key technology for realizing ubiquitous networks and ubiquitous society. In Japan, on ad hoc network, much R&D and related works have been done and on going in academia, industries and governments. Test-bed based research is an important aspect of research on ad hoc networks. The performance of ad hoc networks in real-world situations typically depends on many complex phenomena. This paper introduces a few topics of test-bed based ad hoc network research activities in Japan.
