Internet Of Things (IOT) is a wireless ad-hoc network of everyday objects collaborating and cooperating with one other in order to accomplish some shared objectives. The envisioned high degrees of association of humans with IOT nodes require equally high degrees of reliability of the network. In order to render this reliability to IOT networks, it is necessary to make them tolerant to faults. In this paper, the authors propose mixed cross-layered and Learning Automata (LA)-based fault-tolerant routing protocol for IOTs, which assures successful delivery of packets even in the presence of faults between a pair of source and destination nodes.
