Abstract: Underwater acoustic sensor networks (UANs) have emerged as a promising technology recently, which can be applied in many areas such as military and civil, where the communication between devices is crucial and challenging owing to the unique characteristics of underwater acoustic-based environment, such as high latency and low bandwidth. In this paper, context awareness is applied to the design of an underwater communication approach, called context-aware communication approach for a UAN (CACA-UAN), which aims to improve the overall performance of the underwater communication. According to the results, the proposed CACA-UAN can increase the efficiency and reliability of the underwater communication system.
