Self-organisation has emerged as a very promising approach to the design, deployment, operation, control and evolution of complex wireless networks. The dominant strictly layered design style may how- ever not be able to accommodate many useful optimisations, and we conjecture that cross-layer design may offer a more promising approach. In support of this conjecture we demonstrate through simulation-based approach a cross-layer approach to routing in wireless ad hoc networks that exhibits high degrees of self-configuration, self-optimisation and self-healing. Simulation studies show a substantial improvement in self-organisation properties of wireless networks over comparable layered designs.
