The authors' work provides a practical routing to improve the quality and performance of communication in WASN applications. A localized model, SR, is provided to describe the impact of interferences as other factors that incur local minima blocking the transmission in dynamic networks. The SR information provides a certainty of neighborhood topology under the opportunistic communication model, and can be used to achieve more straightforward paths in routings. In the future work, they will study the performance of the approach. The maximum throughput achieved in concurrent communications will be the focus. They will also conduct further study on more accurate information for unsafe areas so that shorter paths can be achieved.
