International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications, Vol. 10, Issue 4, 2014., 10 (4) . pp. 481-496. ISSN 1742-7371 [Article] (doi:10.1108/IJPCC-02-2014-0017)


This paper aims to propose an algorithm, location-aware opportunistic content forwarding (LOC), to improve message directivity using direction vectors in opportunistic networks. The LOC is based on the assumption that if approximate location of the destination node is known, then overall message delivery and cost can be improved. Efficient message delivery with low communication cost is a major challenge in current opportunistic networks. In these networks, nodes do not have prior knowledge of their recipients, and message forwarding can be achieved by selecting suitable forwarder based on some forwarding criteria, as compared to its ancestor mobile ad hoc networks.
