The focus on mesh in the Kernel is timely. One problem that needs to be solved is the time it takes for route discovery. If we do end up with "mobile mesh" then vehicles will be one of the most important nodes (large power source with decent antennas at a good height). The problem is that most of these nodes move at significant speed (when compared with the size of the mesh cell at 3 GHz and above).
Low latency rebroadcast of messages or some smarter route discovery algorithm need to be priorities if mesh is to work in the next generation of mobile networks or beyond (5G or 6G).
