Mobile ad hoc Network (MANET) and Multi Input Multi Output (MIMO) communication are emerging techniques in modern communication system. MIMO and MANET have various applications in the wireless communication system. This paper presents a survey on recent advancement of MIMO implemented mobile ad hoc network. A review of more than 40 papers on MIMO communication based mobile ad hoc network and most of the related topics is presented in this work. This paper shows the significant contribution in the field of MIMO communication and mobile ad hoc network. Previous works in this domain can be categorized into four major areas: (a) Mathematical modeling of MIMO channel and Ad hoc networks, (b) Physical Scattering Model of MIMO channel considering fading (c) Spatial multiplexing (OFDM) technique with MIMO channel, (d) Analysis of transmission efficiency of packet radio network. The review paper establishes the advancement in these four areas as well as recent changes in advance communication and networking environments.

2. Mathematical Modeling Of Mimo Channel And Ad Hoc Networks

The rate at which the users can receive data is user-dependent and time-varying because of unpredictable channel fading and user mobility. This is the most important feature of these systems. In particular, when a user is close to the transmitter they can receive data at higher rate compared to when they are further away from the transmitter. In recent years, lot of work has been carried out to develop effective and efficient mobile ad hoc network.
