The authors develop a distributed opportunistic routing scheme with early congestion detection for multi-hop wireless networks. The introduced scheme utilizes the functionality of opportunistic routing and considering an expected average per packet reward criterion, shortest path and so on. Congestion in network causes packet loss and delayed packet delivery. By detecting congestion earlier, the routing scheme which utilizes the opportunities in the network can increase the rate of performance and reliability of the network. They implement it in the NS2 simulator and experiment with AODV routing protocol.
