In this paper, the authors investigate Epidemic novel strategies called SNPS and EAER-SNPS applied to a DTN Network. These strategies extend the approach of the basic epidemic routing by using the node density estimation and the nodes energy levels; they adopt the forwarding scheme of the n-Epidemic routing. However, differently from n-Epidemic, it applies a dynamic forwarding scheme based on nodes density that is able to reduce energy consumption and increase message delivery probability. A deep campaign of simulations was carried out in order to verify the effectiveness of the SNPS and EAER-SNPS.
