An Approach Towards Dynamic Opportunistic Routing in Wireless Mesh Networks
Opportunistic Routing (OR) for multi-hop wireless networks was first proposed by the researchers, but again as a modified version Extremely Opportunistic Routing (ExOR). A few other variants of the same were also proposed in the meanwhile time. In this paper, the authors propose a Dynamic Opportunistic Routing (DOR) protocol which depends on network density and also provides spatial diversity. Their routing protocol is distributed in nature and provides partial 802.11 MAC layer abstraction. To verify the results of their protocol they took a network with light-density of nodes and bigger in size (as OR performs better in higher node density).
