Destination-Initiated Geographic Multicasting Protocol in Wireless Ad Hoc Sensor Networks

Executive Summary

There have been proposed many geographic multicasting protocols for wireless ad hoc sensor networks. Most of these protocols tend to exploit a Source-initiated Geographic Multicasting (SGM) approach which consists of three phases: first, a source collects the position information of all destination nodes; second, the source constructs a multicast tree through the position information; third, the source forwards data down the multicast tree. However, if a multicast group contains many mobile destinations, the SGM approach may cause a great deal of delivery of position registration and update messages to the source, thus lead to significant energy consumption of the sensor nodes in the vicinity of the source.
