Impact of location inconsistencies on geographic routing in wireless networks
Recently, geographic routing in wireless networks has gained attention due to several advantages of location information. Location information eliminates the necessity to set up and maintain explicit routes. These advantages allow scalability especially in dynamic and unstable wireless networks. However, no matter which technologies or techniques a location system uses, its measurements will have some amount of quantifiable inaccuracy depending on environment and system. These inaccuracies may affect the performance and even correctness of geographic routing. However, thus far, these impacts have not been studied in-depth. In this paper, we analyze the impact of location inaccuracy on geographic routing. Our study shows the significant impact of location inaccuracy on the performance of geographic routing in terms of packet drops, non-optimal paths and routing loops.
