In geographic routing, nodes need to maintain up-to-date positions of their immediate neighbours for making effective forwarding decisions. Periodic broadcasting of beacon packets that contain the geographic location coordinates of the nodes is a popular method used by most geographic routing protocols to maintain neighbour positions. We contend that(More)

The extension of Internet services to public transport passengers is slowly becoming inevitable. Several architectures for providing Internet access to moving vehicles have been evaluated in the past. However, most of these studies have focused on using static gateways. In this paper, we study the feasibility of an architecture that involves deploying(More)
— Geocasting uses location information to disseminate messages within a specified geographic area. However, in some applications, it is not feasible for the nodes to be able to determine their location coordinates. In this paper, we propose a novel distanced-based approach for local geocasting to address this problem. In local geocasting, source node is(More)
