—This paper is concerned with the design and analysis of delay-tolerant networks (DTNs) deployed for free-roaming animal monitoring, wherein information is either transmitted or carried to static access-points by the animals whose movement is assumed to be random. Specifically, in such mobility-aided applications where routing is performed in a(More)
— We characterize some fundamental performance limits of partially covered, intermittently connected, delay-tolerant networks (DTNs) that are comprised of a hybrid mix of mobile and static nodes (i.e., access points). Specifically, we derive theoretic bounds on the expected hitting time between two consecutive visits of a mobile node to access points for(More)
— We derive theoretical performance limits of densely covered delay-tolerant networks (DTNs). In the DTN model we study, a number of fixed (data collector) nodes are deployed in the DTN region where mobile (data generator) nodes move freely in the region according to Brownian motion. As it moves, each mobile node is assumed to continuously generate and(More)
