The B.A.T.M.A.N routing algorithm is a routing solution for ad hoc wireless networks. Two of these branches, Batmand and Batman-adv are the most commonly used as the default routing protocols on the Mesh Potato's (MP). The MPs are devices that use VoIP to communicate over the air with each other. These devices are the most common use of the Batman routing protocols and there are no performance tests conducted on the devices. Furthermore, there are no performance tests that can conclusively tell us which of the two branches is the better one and should serve as the first choice on the MPs. This paper highlights the differences between the protocols theoretically and describes a testbed in order to measure performances of the routing protocols.
