We present a turnover based adaptive HELLO protocol (TAP), which enables nodes in mobile networks to dynamically adjust their HELLO messages frequency depending on the current speed of nodes. To the best of our knowledge, all existing solutions are based on specific assumptions (e.g., slotted networks) and/or require specific hardware (e.g., GPS) for speed(More)
In the current worldwide ICT scenario, a constantly growing number of ever more powerful devices (smartphones, sensors, household appliances, RFID devices, etc.) join the Internet, significantly impacting the global traffic volume (data sharing, voice, multimedia, etc.) and foreshadowing a world of (more or less) smart devices, or " things " in the Internet(More)
ET X(uv) |uv| as edge weight (ET X(uv) counts all transmissions and possibly acknowledgments between two nodes until message is received), and selects RNG neighbor with greatest progress toward destination (if none of RNG neighbors has progress, all neighbors are considered). Our experiments show that GARE is significantly more efficient than existing XTC(More)
Sensor networks are wireless adhoc networks where all the nodes cooperate for routing messages in the absence of a fixed infrastructure. Non-flooding, guaranteed delivery routing protocols are preferred because sensor networks have limited battery life. Location aware routing protocols are good candidates for sensor network applications, nevertheless they(More)
HAL is a multidisciplinary open access archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific research documents, whether they are published or not. The documents may come from teaching and research institutions in France or abroad, or from public or private research centers. L'archive ouverte pluridisciplinaire HAL, est destinée au dépôt età la diffusion(More)
Smart City represents one of the most promising and prominent Internet of Things (IoT) applications. In the last few years, smart city concept has played an important role in academic and industry fields, with the development and deployment of various middleware platforms. However, this expansion has followed distinct approaches creating a fragmented(More)
We propose an energy efficient routing protocol, VCost, for sensor networks. We assume that nodes are unaware of their geographic location thus, VCost assigns virtual coordinates to nodes as follows. Based on the node hop count distances from a set of landmarks, our method computes a distance metric to obtain the node's virtual coordinates. VCost, then uses(More)
A vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) is a type of mobile network whose nodes are traveling cars and which communicate with one another using short-range wireless communications. These cars can exchange and share different information among them, which can lead to the development of interesting applications that require the cooperation of vehicles or using the(More)
One of the notoriously difficult problems in vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANET) is to ensure that established routing paths do not break before the end of data transmission. This is a difficult problem because the network topology is constantly changing and the wireless communication links are inherently unstable, due to high node mobility. In this paper we(More)
