Opportunistic or Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs) may be used to enable communication in case of failure or lack of infrastructure ( disaster, censorship, remote areas) and to complement existing wireless technologies (c ellular, WiFi. [] Key Result One of the reasons is the large diversity of eme rging wireless applications and networks exhibiting such “episodic” connectivity. These n etworks often have very different characteristics and requirements, making it very difficult , if not impossible, to design a…

Towards the Opportunistic Combination of Mobile Ad-hoc Networks with Infrastructure Access
This work addresses the interaction between the ad-hoc routing and the infrastructure access by devising a decision algorithm that determines when it is better to route messages through a tunnel where the endpoints are nodes with access to the infrastructure, enabling long "jumps" over the network.

Partial multipath routing with interference avoidance is proposed that does not establish another full routing path but establish a partial multipath to complement some poor links, and the routing paths have enough distance from each other to reduce path interference.
IBRP: An Infrastructure-Based Routing Protocol Using Static Clusters in Urban VANETs
The static analysis of the proposed approach is efficient, scalable, and able to reduce network overhead in large and dense urban VANETs.

An improved hybrid technique for energy and delay routing in mobile ad-hoc networks
This research proposed a new energy and delay-aware routing protocol that combines cellular automata with the hybrid genetic algorithm (GA) and African Buffalo Optimization (ABO) to optimize the path selection in the ad-hoc on-demand distance vector (AODV) routing protocol.
SCIDR: A Scalable Cluster based Inter-Domain Routing Protocol for Heterogeneous MANET
This paper proposes a novel technique called SCIDR-Scalable Cluster based Inter-domain Routing that is meant exclusively for heterogeneous MANET system and is designed on a totally different principle compared to standard CIDR protocol.
An efficient routing strategy for performance improvement in WMNs
This paper proposes a strategy for an efficient interconnection of the client network with the backbone, in order to minimize the asymmetry of paths, and shows an improvement in network performances for the involved nodes, evaluated in terms of network delay and network throughput.
WiEnum: Node enumeration in wireless networks
This paper presents an efficient scheme for enumerating the N nodes of a multi-hop wireless network, and demonstrates the effectiveness of WiEnum in assigning unique, short IDs by comparing its performance to that of another leading algorithm for ID assignments, termed SIDA.
MAC Layer Challenges and Proposed Protocols for Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks
The main challenge for VANet safety applications is to design an efficient MAC, so that all safety-related messages can be sent on time and such a protocol should be reliable because human lives are involved in the case of VANET.
OCSR: Overlapped Cluster-Based Scalable Routing Approach for Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs)
A hierarchical approach has been designed for handling significantly large VANETs by providing better mobility management and the formation of multiple overlapped clusters from large VANS using k-means algorithm is major characteristics of this approach.


Routing in Delay-Tolerant Networks Comprising Heterogeneous Node Populations
This paper proposes a class of routing schemes that can identify the nodes of "highest utility" for routing, improving the delay and delivery ratio by four to five times, and proposes an analytical framework based on fluid models that can be used to analyze the performance of various opportunistic routing strategies, in heterogeneous settings.
Utility-based Message Replication for Intermittently Connected Heterogeneous Networks
Communication networks (wired or wireless) have traditionally been assumed to be connected at least most of the time. However, emerging applications such as emergency response, special operations,
Efficient Routing in Intermittently Connected Mobile Networks: The Multiple-Copy Case
A new family of routing schemes that "spray" a few message copies into the network, and then route each copy independently towards the destination, which shows that, if carefully designed, spray routing not only performs significantly fewer transmissions per message, but also has lower average delivery delays than existing schemes.
Relieving the wireless infrastructure: When opportunistic networks meet guaranteed delays
This work proposes Push-and-track, a content dissemination framework that harnesses ad hoc communication opportunities to minimize the load on the wireless infrastructure while guaranteeing tight delivery delays through a control loop that collects user-sent acknowledgements.

This work presents the context-aware routing (CAR) algorithm, a novel approach to the provision of asynchronous communication in partially-connected mobile ad hoc networks, based on the intelligent placement of messages.
Epidemic Routing for Partially-Connected Ad Hoc Networks
This work introduces Epidemic Routing, where random pair-wise exchanges of messages among mobile hosts ensure eventual message delivery and achieves eventual delivery of 100% of messages with reasonable aggregate resource consumption in a number of interesting scenarios.

Simulation results for traditional mobility models, as well as for a more realistic "community-based" model, indicate that the proposed scheme can reduce the delay of existing spraying techniques up to 20 times in some scenarios.

Practical Routing in Delay-Tolerant Networks
A metric that estimates the average waiting time for each potential next hop is designed, which provides performance similar to that of schemes that have global knowledge of the network topology, yet without requiring that knowledge.
A message ferrying approach for data delivery in sparse mobile ad hoc networks
This paper describes a mobility-assisted approach which utilizes a set of special mobile nodes called message ferries to provide communication service for nodes in the deployment area and evaluates the performance of MF via extensive ns simulations which confirm it is efficient in both data delivery and energy consumption under a variety of network conditions.
