In the near future GPS will be widely used, thus allowing a broad variety of location dependent services such as direction giving, navigation, etc. In this paper we propose and evaluate a Touting and addressing method to integrate geographic coordinates into the Internet Protocol to enable the creation of location dependent services. The main challenge is… (More)
The Global Positioning System can be used to give every terminal a geographic address for multicasting to and from recipients within specified geographical areas.
In the near future GPS will be widely used, thus allowing a broad variety of location dependent services such as direction giving, navigation, etc. In this document we propose a family of protocols and addressing methods to integrate GPS into the Internet Protocol to enable the creation of location dependent services. The solutions which we present are… (More)
The Geographic Routing project at Rutgers University attempts to answer the question of how to efficiently transport data packets through an internetwork using only geographic information. Our process uses arbitrary geographical regions (denoted by longitude and latitude) instead of logical computer addresses as the criteria to route a packet. This paper… (More)
This paper describes the methodology and implementation of a data management system for highly distributed systems, which was built to solve the scalability and reliability problems faced in a wide area postal logistics application developed at Siemens. The core of the approach is to borrow from Internet routing protocols, and their proven scalability and… (More)
The geographical routing protocol employs position information from the localization system for multi-hop data communication. However, the location inaccuracy due to the unpredictable node mobility and the power consumption of localization system reduces the performance of geographical routing protocol. Several geographical routing protocols have been… (More)
