MANET field is one of the most vibrant and active research fields in wireless communications networking. MANET can be built around any wireless technology. Wireless communication networks have witnessed recently the introductory of a promising transmission technology called UWB. In MANET, routing protocols are needed to establish and maintain connections between nodes. The main goal of this thesis is to design efficient routing protocols for MANET based on UWB technology in a production line in a factory which is an industrial indoor application. The production line network scenario was defined and simulated in ns-2 simulator as basis for the investigations. In these investigations, AODV, DSR, and OLSR were considered. In addition, closed-form formulas were found for the channel capacity of MANET as a tool for benchmarking and validation. Based on the investigations, two approaches were proposed to design efficient routing protocols for the production line scenario. Based on the first approach, a new routing protocol was designed and it was called Ad-Hoc On-Demand Multipath Source Routing protocol.
