Wireless ad hoc networks are characterized by their limited capabilities and their routine deployment in unfavorable environments. This creates the strong requirement to regulate energy expenditure. We present a scheme to regulate energy cost through optimized transmission scheduling in a noisy epidemic dissemination environment. Building on the intrinsically cross-layer nature of the adaptive epidemic dissemination process, we strive to deliver an optimized mechanism, where energy cost is regulated without compromising the network infection. Improvement of data freshness and applicability in routing are also investigated. Extensive simulations are used to support our proposal.
