Mobile ad hoc network researchers face the challenge of achieving full functionality with good performance while linking the new technology to the rest of the Internet. A strict layered design is not flexible enough to cope with the dynamics of manet environments, however, and will prevent performance optimizations. The MobileMan cross-layer architecture(More)
Routing in intermittently connected mobile ad hoc networks (ICMAN) is a very challenging problem because disconnections are prevalent and the lack of knowledge about network dynamics hinders good decision making. In ICMAN one of the most important decisions is how to choose the most suitable intermediate(s) to forward the message to the destination. We(More)

Recent availability of small inexpensive low power GPS receivers and techniques for finding relative coordinates based on signal strengths, and the need for the design of power efficient and scalable networks, provided justification for applying position based routing methods in ad hoc networks. A number of such algorithms were developed in last few years,(More)
The advance in wireless technologies makes now viable to start to develop ad hoc networks. However, without a mechanism that prevents misbehaviors, these networks could result easily unreliable. We develop a model, based on game theory, capable of formally explaining characteristics of ad hoc networks (as the nodes’ selfishness or the network mobility). It(More)
The past decade has witnessed a growing interest in vehicular networking and its vast array of potential applications. Increased wireless accessibility of the Internet from vehicles has triggered the emergence of vehicular safety applications, locationspecific applications, and multimedia applications. Recently, Professor Olariu and his coworkers have(More)
Using location information to help routing is often proposed as a means to achieve scalability in large mobile ad hoc networks. However, location-based routing is difficult when there are holes in the network topology and nodes are mobile or frequently disconnected to save battery. Terminode routing, presented here, addresses these issues. It uses a(More)
