The issue of importance of multiuser detection for CDMA-based mobile ad hoc networks is addressed in this paper. For conventional scheme, each terminal in the network uses matched filter to receive packets, so the performance (e.g., throughput) of the network suffers from multi-access interference (MAI). Different from above scheme, in this paper, each terminal of the ad hoc network is equipped with an adaptive blind linear multiuser detector, so the ability of MAI-resistance is gained. Employing slotted-ALOHA protocol in MAC layer and using fully-connected network model, the throughput of ad hoc network is studied. Theoretic analysis and simulation results show that multiuser detection can remarkably improve throughput performance of ad hoc networks.
