An Context-aware Management and Control Mechanism in a Mobile Ad-Hoc Environment

Complete integration and interaction of network objects can be achieved in a mobile ad-hoc environment. Yet, the dynamic nature of free movement and interaction among these objects also brings challenges on information representation, processing and communication. This paper presents a context-aware mechanism, which is able to implement efficient information exchange and management between nodes in a Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET). Rejoining and information loop issues happened heavily in a mobile ad-hoc environment has been discussed in this paper. According to the simulation results, the authors' approach to context-aware management and control makes the information loop problem well controlled.
