<p><b>Abstract</b>—The main contribution of this paper is presenting a new model for Smart Dust networks communicating through optical links and showing its applicability when the goal of the network is monitoring an area under the surveillance of a base station. We analyze the basic parameters of these networks as a new model of random graphs and propose simple distributed protocols for basic communication. These protocols are designed to minimize the energy consumption.</p>
