Greedy Geographic Routing Algorithms in a Real Environment
Source: University of Novi Sad
Existing theoretical and simulation studies on georouting appear detached from experimental studies in real environments. The authors set up their test environment by using WSN430 wireless sensor nodes. To overcome the need for significant number of wireless nodes required to perform a realistic experiment in high density network, they introduce a novel approach - emulation by using relatively small number of nodes in 1-hop experimental setup. Source node is a fixed sensor; all available sensors are candidate forwarding neighbors with virtual destination. Source node makes one forwarding step, destination position is adjusted, and the same source again searches for best forwarder.
