Non homogeneous opportunistic network needs a protocol converter for reliable and efficient communication. Most protocol converters are designed based on the Communicating Finite State Machine (CFSM) as the formal description technique to describe the protocols, their services and converter design. The main drawbacks of CFSM model are state explosion problem and the inability to express concurrent behaviors of protocol and services and one major issue is uncertainty of data receiving and sending by the converter. Here, the authors have proposed a new petro net model for a dynamically moving protocol converter, which can overcome the limitation of existing static protocol converter.
