Geographical Routing in Intermittently Connected Ad Hoc Networks

Geographical Routing in Intermittently Connected Ad Hoc Networks
In intermittently connected ad hoc networks standard routing protocols like AODV, DSR and GPSR fail since they generally cannot find a contemporaneous path from source to destination. In this paper we present LAROD, a geographical routing protocol for intermittently connected networks. Combining beacon less geographical routing with store-carry-forward LAROD greedily searches for the shortest way to the destination and when no progress is possible packets are temporarily stored until node mobility has created a new path. In the paper we have shown by a comparative study that LAROD has almost as good delivery rate as an epidemic routing scheme, but at a substantially lower overhead.
