A wireless network is proposed for densely populated areas served by public transportation units (PTUs) in which the base stations are mounted on the PTUs and are thus themselves mobile. The advantages of having such mobile base stations are pointed out, and the proposed architecture is studied, first for a simple geometry, and then for more complex layouts as are found in urban areas. The features of the transportation model, the propagation model, and the communication model are discussed. Results for the simple model with a rectangular geometry and line-of-sight (LOS) propagation are given, work is ongoing on a more general model with non-LOS propagation, various quality-of-service (QoS) properties, and resource allocation and the associated cost analysis, for two wireless technologies, CDMA and TDMA.
