During the past few years, the development of wireless sensor network technologies has spurred the design of novel protocol paradigms capable of meeting the needs of a wide broad of applications while taking into account the inherent constraints of the underlying network technologies, e.g. limited energy and computational capacities. Geographic routing is one of such paradigms whose principles of operation are based on the geographic location of the network nodes. Even though the large number of works already reported in the literature, there are still many open issues towards the design of robust and scalable geographic routing algorithms.
