Broadcasting is a common operation in a network to resolve many issues. In a mobile ad hoc network (MANET) in particular, due to host mobility, such operations are expected to be executed more frequently (such as finding a route to a particular host, paging a particular host, and sending an alarm signal). Because radio signals are likely to overlap with(More)
Recent advances in hardware, software, and communication technologies are enabling the design and implementation of a whole range of different types of networks that are being deployed in various environments. One such network that has received a lot of interest in the last couple of S. Zeadally ( ) Network Systems Laboratory, Department of Computer Science(More)
Vehicular Ad hoc Network (VANET), a subclass of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), is a promising approach for the intelligent transportation system (ITS). The design of routing protocols in VANETs is important and necessary issue for support the smart ITS. The key difference of VANET and MANET is the special mobility pattern and rapidly changeable topology.(More)
This paper develops a mobile learning system for scaffolding students learning about bird-watching. The aim is to construct an outdoor mobile-learning activity using up-to-date wireless technology. The proposed Bird-Watching Learning (BWL) system is designed using a wireless mobile ad-hoc network. In the BWL system, each learner has a PDA (Personal Digital(More)
The goal of the network mobility (NEMO) management is to effectively reduce the complexity of handoff procedure and keep the mobile devices connected to the Internet. Vehicle is moving so fast that it may cause the handoff and packet loss problems. Both of the problems will lower down the throughput of the network. To overcome these problems, we propose a(More)
Many unique characteristics of the mobile learning environment are possessed as follows. (I) Urgency of learning need: The wireless applications are usually be used upon an urgent matter of learning, such as the timing at the chances for problem solving or knowledge linking. Otherwise, the learner may record the questions and look for the answer later in(More)
The peer-to-peer multimedia applications have recently generated much interest in wireless network infrastructure with supporting the quality-of-service (QoS) communications. In this paper, we propose a new on-demand QoS routing, namely link-state multi-path QoS routing, protocol in a wireless mobile ad-hoc network (MANET). Our proposed scheme offers a(More)
In this paper, we describe the development of a mobile butterfly-watching learning (BWL) system which supports independent learners by offering a new pattern of outdoor mobile learning (or called as m-learning) activities. The proposed BWL system was designed using a wireless mobile ad-hoc learning environment. In our designed system, each individual(More)
In this paper, we present a “spatiotemporal multicast”, called a “mobicast”, protocol for supporting applications which require spatiotemporal coordination in vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). The spatiotemporal character of a mobicast is to forward a mobicast message to vehicles located in some geographic zone at time t, where the geographic zone is(More)
The 802.11 IEEE Standard has been enabled low cost and effective LAN services (WLAN). It is widely believed that WLAN will become a major portion of the fourth generation cellular system (4G). The seamless handoff problem is very important design issue. The entire delay time of a handoff is divided into probe, authentication, and reassociation delay time,(More)
