In mobile ad hoc networks, each node is needed to maintain its location information with the neighbor nodes. For this purpose they transmit the beacon packet periodically, which is not fair in terms of update cost and performances in term of routing decision. Further the inaccuracy in local topology has its impact on the performance geographic routing. To overcome this, the authors introduce the efficient beacon scheme and a prediction scheme for link expiration time.
