Bluetooth is a promising wireless technology that enables devices to form short-range multihop wireless ad-hoc networks, or personal area networks. However, the Bluetooth scatternet formation is one of the challenges that need to be resolved since the performance of a Bluetooth network depends largely on the scatternet topology used. We first present a height-balanced binary tree, termed ACB-tree for almost-complete-binary tree, that allows two such trees to be combined to create a larger ACB-tree retaining the height-balance requirements. And, then propose a distributed scatternet formation algorithm to create ACB-trees: the generated scatternet is shown to minimize the number of piconets and provide a logarithmic-diameter in the multihop interconnection network. We also present simulations, conducted using Blueware simulator, to provide experimental results to study and compare the performance of the resulting scatternets.
