A least upper bound is derived on the amount of adjustment of virtual token passing (VTP) time needed to assure collision-free access control in VTP networks (i.e. networks that use 'time-out' or scheduling function-based access protocols) and in which nodes change their spatial configuration due to motion (although always stay within range and in line-of-sight of each other). Since the new bou
