Position-based routing algorithms use the geographic position of the nodes in a network to make the forwarding decisions. Recent research in this field primarily addresses such routing algorithms in two dimensional (2D) space. However, in real applications, nodes may be distributed in three dimensional (3D) environments. In this paper, we propose several randomized position-based routing algorithms and their combination with restricted directional flooding-based algorithms for routing in 3D… CONTINUE READING
