An Underwater Acoustic Routing Protocol Based on Hole Projection
The directed routing protocol ends in failure when it faces a situation of the destination node with a very low velocity in a sparse ad hoc network so, that none of nodes exist in its forwarding zone. Illuminated by BFDREAM and ZONER, the paper firstly proposes a novelty routing protocol that is fairly immune to forwarding failure through projecting the present source node on the boundaries of baffle holes of underwater acoustic networks in deep sea. Compared with DREAM and BFDREAM, the experimental results show the protocol achieves a great improvement in decreasing the propagation delay and reducing quantities of the non-effect information. So, the new protocol may have a bright application prospect in deep sea acoustic networks.
