We present the Virtual Cord Protocol (VCP), which exploits virtual coordinates to provide efficient and failure tolerant routing and data management in sensor networks. VCP maintains a virtual cord interconnecting all the nodes in the network and which, operating similar to a Distributed Hash Table (DHT), provides means for inserting data fragments into sensor nodes and retrieving them. Furthermore, it supports service discovery using indirections. VCP uses two mechanisms for finding paths to… CONTINUE READING
