A Distance-Aware Forwarding Protocol for Beaconless Communication in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks and Its Performance

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Recently, routing protocols for Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) which use position information to improve their efficiency have been actively studied. In this paper, the authors focus on Beacon-Less Routing algorithm (BLR) and propose a new forwarding algorithm that improves BLR and analyze its performance. BLR is efficient to reduce redundancy in its transmissions for flooding. When a node receives a packet, a time variable referred to as deferring time is calculated using the positions of the sender, the receiver, and the final destination of the packet. Each node forwards the packet after this deferring time unless it notices that another node forwards the same packet during the deferring time.
