UWB technology is considered as the best way to implement high speed WPAN with low costs and good commercial reliability. All the standards concerning the UWB address the problems that regard the PHY and the MAC layers of the ISO/OSI stack, while actually there is not enough work about the development of the Network layer of the UWB systems. Common routing protocols used in the Ad-Hoc Networks, like the AODV, do not take into account "inter-node" interference, for this purpose in this work new routing metrics are proposed for the implementation of interference-aware routing protocols. These new proposed metrics are finally compared with the AODV protocol in order to proof the better efficiency of our proposal.
