Geographical Routing in Intermittently Connected MANETs With Guaranteed Delivery at Void Locations
The major challenges in MANETs are finding the destination, routing and robust communication dealing with constant topology change. When there is no end to end path at any given time between source and destination via intermediate peers then it forms partitions in the network. It is said to be intermittently connected network. LAROD is the geographical routing protocol designed for such type of networks. Basically greedy approach is followed in any of the routing protocol to forward the packets. LAROD-LoDiS is also based on greedy packet forwarding along with store carry forward principle. But it works until greedy forwarding is possible.
